A group of young professionals from the Emerald Network travelled to Bosnia & Herzegovina with our 'Lessons from Srebrenica' educational visits programme to witness at first-hand the testimony of survivors and Mothers who lost loved ones in the Srebrenica genocide.
On this day in 1993 Serb forces deliberately destroyed the Ferhadija mosque. Part of the genocidal ethnic cleansing campaign, the mosque was one of 16 in Banja Luka and one of hundreds to be destroyed throughout the Bosnian war and genocide. It was rebuilt in 2016.
This year will mark 26 years since this genocide on European soil. I remember all those murdered by morally bankrupt men full of hatred and ignorance. Forget at our peril or we become complicit In genocide. @genocide8020 @UNOSAPG @SniperAlleyPhot https://t.co/CjgrrzXJ4U
Families of 12 Victims of Srebrenica Genocide gave Consent for their Burial in Potocari Cemetery. While this is not the final number of those who will be buried this year. Important to remember that each year more remains are found and buried at Potocari. https://t.co/SXPzAOLaV0
Today marks a Day of Remembrance for the Murdered Children of Sarajevo. Over 1,500 children were murdered during the brutal Siege of Sarajevo. We remember them and in their honour vow to educate on the consequences of hatred so that their plight is neither forgotten nor repeated.
