Remembering Srebrenica aims to teach current and future generations about the consequences of hatred and intolerance in all communities through learning the lessons from Srebrenica.
The Bosnian town of Srebrenica was declared the UN’s first ‘safe area’. Yet, in July 1995, Bosnian Serb forces systematically murdered 8,327 Bosniak (Bosnian Muslim) men and boys and buried them in mass graves. Muslim women and girls also suffered horrific acts of sexual violence during the war.
In 1945, the world vowed ‘Never Again’ to genocide following the horrors of the Holocaust. Yet, 50 years later, on European soil, as the Balkans war turned neighbour against neighbour, the unthinkable happened again.
Today, Remembering Srebrenica is calling upon communities in the UK to:
Remember the victims and survivors of the Srebrenica genocide; Learn the lessons from Srebrenica, particularly that we must always be vigilant against hatred and intolerance in our communities and pledge to take action now to build better and safer communities for all.

Remembering Srebrenica is the UK charitable initiative that promotes Srebrenica Memorial Day on 11th July and educates about the consequences of hate.
