To mark Remembering Srebrenica’s 2018 theme ‘Acts of Courage’, we celebrate the ordinary people who undertook acts of extraordinary courage and stood up for their neighbours and resisted hatred. In this short video, we witness some of those inspiring stories of bravery, friendship and love.
This film features two women, Bakira Hasečić and 'Mirsada', who were both subjected to horrific ordeals at the hands of Bosnian Serb forces during their brutal campaign of ethnic cleansing, but bravely speak out to prevent anything similar from happening again.
Introducing our theme for this year: "Breaking the Silence: Gender & Genocide", this powerful short film reveals the shocking truth about women's experiences.
This video was made by our Community Champions in Kirklees for the 21st anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica.
In October 2015 a delegation of artists from London Collective YouPress went out to Bosnia on the Lessons from Srebrenica programme. This video documents their journey and features interview footage with our Bosnian in-country Coordinator, Resad Trbonja.

Breaking the Silence: Bosnia and Beyond brought together a panel of experts on violence against women to consider how we can learn from our collective dark past. This talk was recorded to be shown at the event in Gloucester in July 2016. All the names in the talk have been changed.

A girl in Srebrenica who was wearing a headscarf was harassed by school children who told her to take it off. The fact that young individuals possess such prejudice is a cause for concern & underlines the scale of the challenge that exists https://t.co/OA3YLyYY4i.

Our thoughts are with the victim of the horrific attack at Regents Park Mosque. The fact this happened in a place of worship that the Muslim community see as their sanctuary is truly devastating & shows why we must work hard to counter the hateful narrative that prevails.
There was a time when I dreamt of them—my father, my family, my friends. I would wake up in tears, but also with the warm sensation that I had just seen them, that we had spoken. Now, I never dream of them. Instead I dream only of monsters. https://t.co/Ssx3s6fi08
