Mark Viner co-ordinated the radiography team assisting the forensic investigations of mass graves in Bosnia for seven years. In that time he helped uncover vital evidence to convict those who perpetrated the atrocities in Srebrenica, but also developed techniques that would help in many other disasters across the world. He returned to Srebrenica to learn more about the context and the people in October 2016 and shares his story here.
Alison Anderson MBE left a young family behind in order to travel out to Bosnia and help with the forensic work to identify victims' bodies from mass graves and collect evidence to convict war criminals. She returned in 2016 to learn more about the country and the survivors of the genocide and wrote this piece for us about it.
In the words of #Srebrenica survivor, @NedzadAvdic,"All children have a right to learn what actually happened and not to bring up new generations full of hatred" . Thank you @solihull_rs for playing your part in making this a reality.
This week hear how a group of people from #stokeontrent discovered more about the war in Bosnia and massacre of 8000 men and boys in Srebrenica. And why it’s important today! @SrebrenicaUK @ymcans @Aida_S_Haughton #SOTCulture https://t.co/WwCJN7WWCS
The Bosnian armed forces punished a soldier for saying that former Bosnian Serb military chief and #Srebrenica perpetrator Ratko Mladic “fought against terrorism”. @BalkanInsight
