If you want to find out more about the war in Bosnia in the ’90s and understand what was happening in those tough four years, you should visit Srebrenica – a place where the worst atrocity in Europe since the end of World War II happened. This terrible act of ethnical cleansing, defined as an act of genocide and recognized as such by The American Congress and the European Parliament, will certainly change your perception of the war you might have had before visiting Srebrenica.
Starting from Sarajevo we continue our tour through some beautiful mountainous regions in East Bosnia where you will be able to see farms and agriculture fields. After around three hours of driving, we will arrive at Srebrenica and start our tour with a visit to Potocari Memorial Complex.
On July 11, 1995, after more than three years of the war in Bosnia, Srebrenica – a city in East Bosnia that was considered to be a protected area in the war, became the stage of worst crimes against humanity. More than 8,000 people were killed in the following days. You are going to see a huge graveyard where Srebrenica victims are buried, and some of them, as you will see, were just kids, quilty only for being there, for having a certain name.
This cemetery, together with a memorial and museum is part of the Foundation “Srebrenica-Potocari” established by the decision of the High Representative Wolfgang Petritsch in 2001 in memory of all the victims of Srebrenica Genocide.
The memorial was officially opened by former US President, Bill Clinton in 2003. From that year, there were successive burials of hundreds of victims every year. The atrocity was on such a massive scale that victims are still being disinterred from mass graves in the area and identified.
