The First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, yesterday visited the site of the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War with Remembering Srebrenica
The First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon will today visit Srebrenica, the site of the worst atrocity on European soil since World War Two.
Tomorrow marks an important day in the fight for justice for the victims of Srebrenica and other atrocities committed during the Bosnian war, with the verdict in the trial of Radovan Karadžić due to be handed down by the Trial Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) .
The 27th January marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp. On this day, Holocaust Memorial Day, we commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and remember genocides that have occurred notwithstanding the world’s promise of ‘Never Again’ – Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur.
Britain’s young people can stand up to hatred and help create a safer, stronger society – inspired by the lessons of the Srebrenica genocide as the nation marks the 21st anniversary of the atrocity.
This year is the 21st anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide and the United Kingdom’s Srebrenica Memorial Week runs from Sunday 10 July to Sunday 17 July 2016. Our theme to mark this milestone anniversary is ’21: Coming of age – time to act’.
Remembering Srebrenica is calling on Britain’s young people to stand up to hatred and join with older generations to create a safer, stronger society in the 21st anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.
A group of students and academics from the University of Bedfordshire and other UK universities travelled to Bosnia & Herzegovina on our 'Lessons from Srebrenica' programme of educational visits.
When asked whether he accepted the genocide at Srebrenica happened, Peter Handke dismissed the question as 'empty & ignorant'. This is yet another example of the crass & deplorable conduct that reinforces how disgraceful it is to award him the Nobel prize. https://t.co/ID7y5btI4M
'He did not calculate self-preservation into his decisions & sacrificed his work & life to do what was right. The least we can do is to remember him & honour his memory'. @hikmet_karcic on Dervis Korkut who helped save the Sarajevo Haggadah from the Nazis. https://t.co/nzhTUO8hvR
In the lead up to the holidays, we are suggesting books for people looking for something Bosnia related to read over the Christmas period. Our first book is @edvulliamy's "The War is Dead: Long Live The War" - an excellent introduction to what happened in Prijedor and Srebrenica.
Educating young people is an important part of what we do. If you are a #teacher and wish to know more about how you can bring the lessons from #Srebrenica into your school, contact our @KSrebrenica for more details!
It is important that students are able to recognise how hatred in society can lead to the unthinkable - genocide. Today at @SrebrenicaUK, we are dedicating a whole day to education, and how we can better equip young people to tackle hatred and learn the lessons from Srebrenica.
26 years ago yesterday I left #Prijedor with one of my sisters and had to leave mother and my other sister behind. That day was the last time I saw my grandma. Had to leave my own home my country in the middle of #Europe in 1993 just because I am #Muslim and because I am #Bosnian
