Una Srabović-Ryan is a British Bosnian whose biological father was killed in the Srebrenica genocide. She was adopted at 6 months and moved with her adoptive family at the age of 5 to the UK. In 2016 she went to Australia to meet her biological mother. It was during her time there that she learnt of her father’s name and saw his picture for the first time.
And I do what I can, as here, to warn against equivocations & denialism about these horrific crimes. I’m espec disturbed when I hear the preposterous calumny that Western Muslim populations - like Bosnia’s - are a conduit for jihadism. It’s utterly false. https://t.co/5qAT3vLQR1
The war was not explosion of intractable ancient hatreds. It was systematic campaign of genocidal aggression against a constitutional, multiethnic state, and western policy stood aside rather than prevented it. I wrote of this failure on 20th anniversary. https://t.co/yHTdv68X7L
