The genocide in Srebrenica should never be forgotten. It teaches us a painful lesson about where hatred can lead. But as the Remembering Srebrenica charity reminds us – it is also time to act. Schools should be places which promote respect, understanding and the value of peace.

That is why the National Union of Teachers, with others, has campaigned tirelessly for decades for justice for all. I strongly urge all schools to educate and commemorate. Children are our future and the prize of peace rests with them.
