Remember Srebrenica

A short: I made trying to capture some of the feeling regarding Srebrenica

1. Photography

I have chosen a few photos that really capture the feeling of the moment and the song used in the video. 

2. Music

This song really speaks to my heart and somehow convinces the heartfelt hurt.

Behind the war mountains, far from the world. 

I was born in a small village called Subin in Srebrenica in 1987, a few years before the start of the devastating war that would change your life forever. As a child, you experienced the horrors of war first-hand, witnessing violence, destruction, and loss.

Despite the difficulties you faced, you refused to let the war define you. As you grew older, you channeled your experiences into creativity, using art and other forms of expression to keep the memory of Srebrenica alive.

Years later, as you looked back on your journey, you realized that despite the pain and hardship, you had found a sense of purpose and meaning in your life. And you knew that you would continue to use your creativity to honor the past and build a better future for all. 

Far far away, behind the war mountains.

The war in Srebrenica was a brutal conflict that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina from 1992 to 1995. Srebrenica, a small town in eastern Bosnia, was a designated United Nations “safe area” that was supposed to be protected from the violence of the war. However, in July 1995, Bosnian Serb forces launched a massive attack on Srebrenica, overrunning the town and surrounding areas. In the days that followed, they carried out a campaign of terror, killing thousands of Bosniak Muslim men and boys and forcing the rest of the population to flee. The atrocity was one of the worst incidents of mass murder in Europe since World War II and has been labeled a genocide by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. The aftermath of the Srebrenica massacre has been marked by ongoing efforts to identify and prosecute those responsible, as well as by efforts to promote reconciliation and healing among the communities affected by the conflict.
Remembering Srebrenica means acknowledging the horrors of the past, paying tribute to those who were killed, and working towards a better future, one that is based on respect, tolerance, and understanding.
