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.
Almost a thousand school children are taking to football pitches across Britain today to open the scoring against hatred and intolerance in a nation-wide football tournament to mark the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.
School children across Britain now have the chance to score a victory against hatred and intolerance by playing in a nationwide football tournament to mark the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide
Yesterday, families and survivors of the genocide in the town of Foča, Bosnia gathered to commemorate the brutal ethnic cleansing campaign and genocide in the town that destroyed the lives of thousands. 672 people are still missing whose remains have not been found.
As we remember #srebrenica25 this important anniversary month, and those who are no longer with us, it’s also a time for us to reflect on how we can become more resolute in striving for tolerance and understanding in our communities. https://t.co/X36mh8UJsp
