Srebrenica is an appeal for peace, for solidarity and love to all human beings. It is necessary not to despair, because we have to start again and again, to move in the right direction. Last but not least, Srebrenica is a word for me that presents a challenge, as we should not only pray for the poor victims but also pray and forgive those who committed the crimes. It is also necessary that future generations know what happened and what they must do to prevent such events.” Dr. Erhard Busek.
Today we remember the Srebrenica Genocide, one of the darkest moments in modern European history.
We pay tribute to the victims and their families with this text by Erhard Busek, which was published in 2015 as part of our exhibition and publication project SREBRENICA TODAY.
SREBRENICA TODAY was initiated on the occasion of the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide and the signing of the Dayton Agreement. It was shown on 11 July at the Srebrenica-Potočari Memorial Center as part of the official commemoration ceremony.
