Remembering Srebrenica can confirm that HRH Prince of Wales visit to Srebrenica next week has been cancelled due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. The Prince was going to meet Bosnian genocide survivors to mark the 25th anniversary of when 8,732 Muslims were murdered in what the UN described as “the worst atrocity to happen on […]
We are absolutely disgusted that a bag of pig entrails was left at the Srebrenica genocide memorial on Orthodox Christmas Eve followed by the singing of fascist songs. This stands in contrast with the true meaning of Christmas, being that of love and unity. This vile, Islamophobic behaviour is not an isolated event, but comes […]
On 25th November, Minister for Faith, Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth officially opened ‘Bosnia House’ in Birmingham – the national Bosnian community centre that serves more than 10,000 Bosnians living in the UK. This was a historic moment for a community that survived genocide and ethnic cleansing in Europe and found refuge in the UK. Over […]
Hasan Nuhanović was a translator for the UN when Serb forces took Srebrenica in July 1995. Forced to translate the order to send his family away, he never saw them again. He has dedicated his life to seeking truth and justice.
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 […]

#OnThisDay in 1992 all non-Serb citizens in Prijedor, Bosnia, were forced to wear white armbands in a deliberate attempt to mark people out for persecution and murder.
Learn more about what happened in Prijedor: https://t.co/uolEOD77fe
Over 50,000 forcibly displaced.
4 mass concentration camps.
96 mass graves.
Over 3,100 murdered.
102 children murdered.
Robbed of their humanity. Marked and murdered due to their religion and ethnicity.
Prijedor. Genocide. 31. 05. 1992.
I wear it to remember.
Today we remember the victims in the Prijedor area of Bosnia when in 1992 Serbs forced them to wear white armbands & hang white sheets from their houses to show that they were Muslim. We wear #whitearmbands in memory of those treated in this way & those who were murdered.
Today marks #WhiteArmBandDay. In 1992, as Serb forces took over Prijedor, they ordered the “non-Serb” residents to mark themselves and their homes with white armbands and flags.
Over 3,000, mainly Bosniak Muslims, were murdered through the genocidal ethnic cleansing campaign.
I'd never heard of this before but grateful having been given the opportunity to learn last year through @SrebrenicaUK
Innocent people forced to mark themselves with white armbands then later tortured, killed, raped & sent to concentration camps - hell on earth!
