Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal

The murder of thousands of Muslims, mostly men and boys, at Srebrenica was a terrible crime. The first case of genocide in Europe since the end of the Second World War. It will be my honour to represent the people of the United Kingdom at the 20th anniversary commemoration in the Potocari graveyard on the 11th July, when my thoughts and prayers will be for the victims – those who died, and those they left behind. The lesson of Srebrenica is that the stirring up of hatred and discrimination is always wrong, and if left unchecked, can lead to terrible evil. So we should all, wherever we live in the world, work for understanding and tolerance between all peoples. That is the message of the ‘Remembering Srebrenica’ initiative, and I warmly commend them for their valuable work.
