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

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.
