The You Press collective group of artists were deeply inspired by Srebrenica to create work about human rights and war, with many pieces drawn from survivors’ accounts of the genocide in Bosnia. This event featured performances of this work and drew a diverse crowd to learn more about Srebrenica.
Attended my first North East Srebrenica Board meeting this evening. Got to hear all about local plans as part of #srebrenicamemorialday2019 from the fantastic Chair @_lucyadams2 and very much looking forward to being a part of it @SmajoBeso @SrebrenicaUK

#OnThisDay in 1992, Serb forces attacked the town of Kozarac. Over 1,000 people were killed, and those who survived were incarcerated in concentration camps. Most houses still standing after the attack were set on fire & razed to the ground to prevent the possibility of return.
'We simply can't live without each other. The bridge is a symbol, and we want to send a message of love across Bosnia'. Two communities from Bosnia who have worked together for more than 20 years have reconstructed a bridge that will better connect them. https://t.co/2a00clwu2u
