Join with the Board of Remembering Srebrenica (Scotland) on Wednesday 30th May at the Scottish Parliament to learn about the Srebrenica Genocide in this 23rd year since the atrocity. We will also remember White Armband Day, marked by Bosnian communities across the world on 31st May, not only to remember the victims, but also to raise awareness of continuing human rights violations taking place in the area today. To this day, local authorities in Prijedor have refused to permit the construction of a memorial for the innocent civilian victims killed in the notorious concentration camp at Omarska or a memorial to the children that were killed in the war.
This event is sponsored by Kezia Dugdale MSP and Gail Ross MSP.
We will hear from Nedzad Avdic- survivor of a Srebrenica firing squad, from a recently returned delegation led by Lorna Hood & Kezia Dugdale looking at Gender& Genocide as well as hearing of our activities here in Scotland to challenge hatred and prejudice.
Pupils from Braes High School Falkirk will share their experiences of using material from the charity
There will also be an update on our newly designed Education Pack for use in schools.
You can book your place here.
