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 ABiH, defending the city and its civilians.
Nusreta Sivac was of 37 women taken to the infamous Omarska camp in Prijedor, and subjected to unimaginable sexual violence. Nusreta has bravely spoken out about her experience and encouraged others to do the same.
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 to set up a football school for children of all faiths and ethnicities.
At the age of 15, 'Mirsada' was imprisoned in a rape camp as part of the campaign of 'ethnic cleansing' taking place across Bosnia. She has shown incredible courage to survive, raise a family and now tells us her story.
Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by the tragic events in Sri Lanka. These reprehensible acts, committed by those who are driven by hatred, aim to create fear & division in communities. We must stand together in solidarity & show that they will never succeed.
This week marks 6 years since @SrebrenicaUK was founded. Since 2013, we've organised 6,200 memorial activities, educated 90,000 young people & created 1,200 Community Champions who pledge to stand up to hatred & intolerance. Grateful to all whose support has made this possible.

#OnThisDay in 2004, the Appeals Chamber in the Prosecutor v Krstić case unanimously found that genocide was committed in Srebrenica, describing it as a 'crime against all humankind, its harm being felt not only by the group targeted for destruction, but by all of humanity'.
Proud to welcome speakers, delegates and guests to discuss the steps to genocide and how to promote respect, peace and tolerance @SrebrenicaUK @WirralNEU @NEUnion @BritishRohingya #againsthate #notoislamaphobia #standuptoracism
