Bearing Witness: Studying the lessons from Srebrenica

Some 25 delegates travelled to Srebrenica and witnessed at first-hand the testimony of survivors and Mothers who lost loved ones in the Srebrenica genocide. They learned more about the vital work of the International Commission for Missing Persons (ICMP) in reuniting families with the remains of loved ones. They returned to the UK to begin planning a Srebrenica-based performance in their community – aimed at raising awareness of the genocide and challenging hatred.

Here, three members of the group are filmed at the Srebrenica-Potočari Memorial Complex – where some 6,000 genocide victims have now been laid to rest. Emily Miller, Martin Spafford and Helen Connolly tell us about their experiences in Bosnia and how the visit has affected them.
