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.
It is impossible to understand genocide in numbers alone, but with every name there is the story of a loved one buried in Potočari. By bearing witness to these stories we can truly learn the lessons from Srebrenica. @SrebrenicaUK
The strength and courage of the Mothers of Srebrenica is inspirational. These women who lost their families to genocide have tirelessly fought for their loved ones and to build a community without hate. @SrebrenicaUK
#OnThisDay 2003 fmr POTUS @BillClinton opens Srebrenica-Potočari Memorial & Cemetery:
"I hope #Srebrenica will remind every child that pride in our own religious & ethnic heritage does not require or permit us to dehumanize or kill those who are different"
V glad to be accompanying @SrebrenicaUK in Bosnia. Above Sarajevo you get a sense of its vulnerability during its long siege. Building middle left is Vijećnica, City Hall, set ablaze in Aug ‘92 with the destruction of 90% of National Library’s collections.
