Remembering Srebrenica

Fifty years after the world said “Never Again” to the horrors of the Holocaust, genocide took place on European soil.

The name Srebrenica has become synonymous with those dark days in July 1995 when, in the first ever United Nations declared safe area, thousands of men and boys were systematically murdered and buried in mass graves. The victims, who were Muslim, were selected for death on the basis of their identity. This was the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War.

What We Do

  • Our Survivors

  • Our Impact

We are grateful to all our genocide survivors who dedicate so much of their time and commitment to providing their valuable advice, speaking at memorial events across the UK, sharing their stories to inspire others to reject hatred and help build a better, stronger and more cohesive society for everyone. If you would like to add your story to our growing list, please get in touch.

None of our achievements would be possible without the support and the hard work, dedication and commitment of our 8 Regional Boards, 3 National Boards and 1,450 Community Champions. The chairs of our boards, their board members and our 1,450 Community Champions give up their time in a voluntary capacity to help tackle hatred and build cohesive communities.

In the last eight years, Remembering Srebrenica has educated 130,000 young people on the lessons from Srebrenica, enables each year over 1,800 community actions in schools, local authorities, places of worship, community centres, prisons and police forces right across the UK and has created 1,450 Community Champions who pledge to stand up to hatred and intolerance in their communities.
