Join Us for a Coffee Morning
In this Coffee Morning pack, you will find a brief history, survivor testimony and also information on the importance of coffee in the Bosnian culture. We hope the pack inspires you to organise your own coffee morning to remember and honour the victims and survivors of the genocide.
Srebrenica Memorial Day honours the victims and survivors of the genocide. It offers a unique opportunity to remember the lives lost in Srebrenica, to highlight the continued consequences of genocide, and to reaffirm our own commitment to strong community relations here in the UK.
By holding a memorial day in your local community you take a significant step towards helping achieve this goal. It is through these powerful messages that we are all able to strengthen our resolve and send out a message to all those attempting to create divisions within our societies.
Faith & Interfaith
In order to support the police in commemorating the Srebrenica genocide, we have created a tool that can be used as a presentation or a workshop, linking hate crime and some of the 10 stages of genocide, so that police officers, control room workers, as well as cadets can learn from Bosnia, and understand how forms of hatred can intersect and compound each other in the UK.
Rebuilding Lives Resources
Every year, Remembering Srebrenica selects a theme that reflects an aspect of the genocide that must be commemorated, but also speaks to communities here in the UK.
The theme for 2021 is ‘Rebuilding Lives’.
Please find ready-made resources for your commemoration.
