One of the worst atrocities of the war in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s, took place between 6 and 16 July 1995 in Srebrenica. Tens of thousands of Muslim Bosnians had taken refuge from ‘ethnic cleansing’ elsewhere in the region and the area was formally protected by a – small and insufficiently armed – battalion of Dutch UN-soldiers. The UN and Dutchbat proved unable to prevent the genocide.
20 Years after these events we will look at the current day situation in Srebrenica and in Bosnia and Herzegovina, particularly focussing on the situation of the generations growing up in post-war Bosnia.
