On July 14th, 2020, we commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide as we stood with the victims and survivors of the worst crime committed on European soil since World War II.
After the Holocaust, the world vowed “Never Again,” but the fall of the United Nations “safe area” of Srebrenica to Bosnian Serb and Serbian forces in July of 1995 stands out as the international community’s most egregious failure to intervene during the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It led to genocide, forced displacement, and a legacy of loss.
To commemorate 25 years since the genocide at Srebrenica, the Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina was joined by a panel of distinguished speakers who offered their perspective on the actions we all must undertake to ensure that justice prevails, and that the lessons of Srebrenica are not forgotten.
Speakers included: Ambassador Samantha Power, Dr. Emir Suljagic, Adisada Hoque, Ambassador Eric Nelson, Menachem Z. Rosensaft, Ida Sefer, Elmina Kulasic. Hosted by Ajla Delkic.
