Find your nearest memorial week events in 2016

In order to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, our fantastic Community Champions and volunteers have worked tirelessly to organise local memorial community action events up and down the country to bring communities together. Take a look at the event listings below and a map of memorial community action for 2016 to see what is happening near you.


Please contact [email protected] to inquire about an event, or to register your own commemoration. Community action marked in green is open to all (check details to see if tickets are required), private events are marked in red and are invite-only. Our national community action can be seen in black and are also invite-only, due to limited capacity and high demand.
We will be updating the list and map below as more and more community action events are registered in the lead up to memorial week. 

 

We hope to see you there to join us in honouring and remembering the victims of genocide.
