It probably wouldn’t be stretching the truth to state that Dr Ilijaz Pilav was the last man to leave Srebrenica. Forcing his injured patients into the care of unwilling UN staff, the doctor ran back to the post office to make a last ditch attempt to radio Sarajevo for help. As he raced across the […]
Children at schools in Berkshire will get the opportunity to hear first-hand testimony from a survivor of the Srebrenica genocide next week.
Hajrudin Mesić, the youngest of five brothers, is the only one of his siblings to survive the Srebrenica genocide. He was 21 when it happened. Before the war started, he had more reason than most to be hopeful about his future. “I always wanted to continue studying and be a teacher. We were the first […]
Kada Hotić lost her son, husband and two brothers in the genocide. Though horrific, it is the least extraordinary part of her story. What she witnessed during the night and day she spent at the UN base and the 90 minute bus journey as she was deported from Srebrenica would send chills down anyone’s spine. […]
Dr Fatima Dautbašić-Klempić was one of five doctors in Srebrenica at the time of the siege and one of the few women who joined the men on what became known as the ‘Death March’. During the siege things got worse and worse. One day, people were in a big crowd in front of the middle […]
Only a few people have been allowed to interview Munira Subašić at the home she has made for herself in the suburbs of Sarajevo, but the comforts she now enjoys of a well-appointed house have come at an extremely high cost. Hers is the face of tens of thousands of mothers. Hers is the voice […]

Excellent inaugural meeting of our newest board in the East Midlands. Thank you to all who attended this evening to plan so many exciting activities for this year's Srebrenica Memorial Week.
Serge Brammertz, former Prosecutor at the ICTY has said that yesterday's ruling should prove even to Karadžić's diehard supporters that he is no hero & he will instead "be remembered by history as a war criminal responsible for horrific human suffering." https://t.co/O1vKooaU6g
'The tribunal finally did it. They sentenced this war criminal with the aim to prevent such crimes from ever happening again'. Some survivors shared their reaction to yesterday's ruling which would not have happened without their tireless campaigning, strength & determination.
An exceptionally important judgement at this time putting hatred and terror behind bars for life where it belongs. With respect to the victims of Srebrenica, the families who fought for justice and @TheICMP who fought with them @SrebrenicaUK https://t.co/CbVcmoie2I
