The World Remembers Srebrenica

As the world commemorates the Srebrenica genocide of July 1995, Remember.ba serves as a digital memorial, preserving the stories of the over 8,000 Bosniak men and boys systematically murdered—the worst atrocity on European soil since World War II.

Amidst the backdrop of the Bosnian War, Srebrenica, a designated "safe area" by the United Nations, became a site of unimaginable horror. Despite assurances of protection, Bosniak civilians seeking refuge in Srebrenica were subjected to relentless attacks by Bosnian Serb forces.

In July 1995, Bosnian Serb forces overran Srebrenica, leading to the mass execution of Bosniak men and boys. Families were torn apart, and thousands were forcibly displaced. The brutality of the genocide sent shockwaves across the globe, highlighting the failure of the international community to intervene and protect innocent lives.

Through testimonies, photographs, and historical accounts, Remember.ba honors the memory of those who perished in the genocide. Each story serves as a poignant reminder of the human cost of hatred and intolerance, urging us to confront the past with courage and compassion.

As we reflect on the Srebrenica genocide, Remember.ba underscores the imperative of remembrance in preventing future atrocities. By bearing witness to the suffering endured by the victims and their families, we reaffirm our commitment to building a world free from hatred and violence.
