Birmingham to remember Srebrenica massacre

Birmingham City Council is commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre by hosting a memorial event in collaboration with the UK charity, Remembering Srebrenica.

In 1995 8,372 Bosnians were killed in the worst massacre in Europe since the end of the Second World War. The genocide took place during the war in Yugoslavia which saw the country break up into independent states.

At the event messages will be shared from delegates who were given the opportunity to visit both Sarajevo and Srebrenica where they were able to meet survivors of the genocide and understand about the ongoing procedure of identifying the dead.
