Commemorating Srebrenica within your faith community is a powerful and often very meaningful way to connect people with the Lessons from Srebrenica.
Whether you observe the Srebrenica genocide through prayers, sermons, or sharing stories in your place of worship, there are materials suitable for everyone. Take a look at our wide selection of prayers here.
We have also suggested content for Jum’a, Shabbat, and Sunday morning Church services. Download our suggested materials here, which you can adapt to suit your own congregation. These template programmes contain relevant prayers, stories, and pledges for those who wish to mark Srebrenica in Churches, Mosques and Synagogues.
One of the most impactful ways to engage congregations with Srebrenica is through survivor testimony. Honour their brave testimonies by sharing their stories through our event videos.
If you wish to hold an interfaith event or welcome people of different faith to attend your memorial service, consider reading this interfaith speech below which you can download here:
Additionally, you could consider commemorating our theme “Breaking the Silence: Gender and Genocide” and inviting women of the congregation to lead the service.
