The March for Peace in memory of the 8,000 Muslim victims of the Srebrenica genocide

At the time of the solemn commemoration of the 28th anniversary of the ethnic cleansing committed on our doorstep, from July 7 to 16, 1995, against 8,000 Bosnian Muslims, the martyred city of Srebrenica recalls to our memories which remain haunted by the appalling imprint of a genocidal massacre.

Let us remember the martyr city of Srebrenica, its long procession of terrorized and dismembered Muslim families, and its 8,000 male victims, young and old, brutally torn from their loved ones to be imprisoned and tortured – husbands, fathers, sons , nephews, cousins, uncles, grandfathers…- then led to death, before being coldly executed, thrown or buried in mass graves.

Let’s remember the Srebrenica genocide, through the videos below:

  • the first shows the great annual Peace March which brought together in Bosnia and Herzegovina, this Saturday, July 8, 2023, thousands of Muslims;
  • the second recounts the horror of a mass massacre methodically perpetrated by Serbian butchers, the most infamous of whom were Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, and takes us into the confines of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia ( ICTY), where some heartbreaking testimonies are overwhelming for the international community.

As a reminder : The ICTY was established on May 25, 1993 by resolution 827 of the Security Council of the United Nations, in order to prosecute and try people who have been guilty of serious violations of international humanitarian law on the territory of the United Nations. former Yugoslavia, from 1 January 1991.

A court whose judges were not afraid to qualify the crimes planned against 8,000 Bosnian Muslims by the only designation appropriate to their monstrosity: genocide.
