Almost a quarter of a century has passed since the genocide at Srebrenica, a dark chapter in human history that left a lasting mark on many around the world. But in that time, a whole generation has grown up with no first-hand memory of that bloody summer. They know of the atrocity not from nightly TV reports or the front pages of newspapers, but from history books that can all too easily be left to gather dust on some long-forgotten shelf.
That’s why Remembering Srebrenica’s work is so valuable. It both reminds us of the Srebrenica genocide and warns us of where hatred can lead if left unchecked. Remembering Srebrenica plays a significant role in schools and communities across the UK, alongside social action and awareness projects inspired by Lessons from Srebrenica visits. After every genocide, we say “never again”. This important work will help ensure we really mean it.
