Remembering Srebrenica is a British charitable initiative which organises the UK events for the EU-designated Srebrenica Memorial Day, which takes place annually on 11 July. It runs a tailored education programme called Lessons from Srebrenica, which sees groups of delegates visit Bosnia and Herzegovina. The aim is to teach delegates the lessons of the country’s grim past to better inform the present. Alongside this, the charity conducts an awareness raising campaign, which is aimed at countering discrimination and building stronger community relations.
We recognise that we have achieved a lot in terms of building a cohesive society here in the UK, but discrimination, promotion of hatred, extremism, and exclusion persist, and we must play our part, no matter how large or small, to create a better and safer society for all.
We are committed to using the lessons from Srebrenica to tackle hatred and intolerance to help build a better, safer and more cohesive society for everyone.We do this by:
Keeping the memory alive through organising commemoration events, which bring together communities to REMEMBER the victims of Srebrenica.
Taking people on our ‘Lessons from Srebrenica’ visits programme to LEARN the lessons from the genocide, and set up projects to build safer, more cohesive communities
Creating champions who PLEDGE to stand up against hatred and intolerance in their communities.
