Thank you for requesting these educational resources. Your use of these resources supports Remembering Srebrenica in our work to raise awareness of the genocide in the UK and contribute to strengthening British society by helping to tackle hatred, racism and intolerance wherever it occurs.
Our remote-learning 2020 resources are now available for the ‘Every Action Matters’ theme for the 25th Anniversary.
The form time resource pack contains a series of short discussions which can be taught in form periods/tutor time or uploaded onto remote learning platforms. These workshops investigate the Srebrenica genocide, ethnic cleansing and the Bosnian War to give students the chance to engage with a range of topics and increase their understanding across the board. Each discussion contains a short piece of survivor testimony to read.
Lesson plan and slides for 1 hour 10 Stages of Genocide workshop, discussing the behaviours that occur in a society before a genocide is carried out. In order to understand what happened at Srebrenica in July 1995, it is important to look back and understand the process by which the genocide occurred. This workshop introduces the Srebrenica genocide and the 10 Stages of Genocide.
Our new 2020 PSHE pack contains a 6 lesson plan resource on understanding genocide, identity, justice, cohesive communities and becoming critical consumers of information. The 10 stages of genocide workshop provides an introduction to the Srebrenica genocide whilst challenging students to examine the behaviours in a society that precede a genocide. The pack is now fully resourced including videos of survivor testimonies from 2019, presentations and example worksheets to support students’ learning about this very important topic.

Hasan Nuhanović was 24 years old when the war broke out. Returning home to Eastern Bosnia, he was a translator for the UN when Serb forces took Srebrenica in July 1995. Forced to translate the order to send his family away, he never saw them again. He has dedicated his life to seeking truth and justice.
Predrag Pašić was an international footballer before the war. When Bosnian Serb forces surrounded Sarajevo, he had the choice to leave the besieged city. Instead, he chose to stay and set up a football school for children of all faiths and ethnicities.
Jovan Divjak was a Commander of the Territorial Defence in Sarajevo when the war in Bosnia began. In April 1992, he stayed in Sarajevo to be part of the multi-ethnic the army of Bosnia-Herzegovina, defending the city and its civilians.
Raised with stories of the heroism of her father, a human rights activist murdered in World War II, when war came again to Stolac, Fadila followed in his footsteps, courageously saving her Serb neighbours from the Croat soldiers.
Hate crime and hate incidents are still on the rise in the UK. Here we pay tribute to those everyday heroes that stand up and speak out against hatred and division. In the words of Millicent Fawcett, recently honoured with a statue in Parliament Square “Courage Speaks to Courage Everywhere.”
Assembly plan for use during Memorial week – Based on the story Gleam and Glow by Eve Bunting, this assembly tells the story of Viktor, a young Bosnian boy forced to leave his home during the war. The assembly looks at the concept of difference within our community, encouraging children to embrace diversity.
