Remembering Srebrenica -20 Years On (graphic scenes)
Remembering Srebrenica: 20 Years On examines the horror and inhumanity of what happened at Srebrenica. It tells the stories of genocide survivor Nedžad Avdić and Srebrenica mother Hatidza Mehmedović. Nedžad was just 17 when the Bosnian Serb murder squads came to Srebrenica in July 1995. They shot him and left the teenager to die. Somehow, he managed to survive and tell his story. Hatidza lost her husband and two sons in the genocide. With other civilians, she had tried to find protection in the UN base at Potočari, only to find that Ratko Mladić’s troops had taken over and begun days of killing and torture.
The name Srebrenica has become synonymous with those dark days in July 1995 when, in the first ever United Nations declared safe area, thousands of men and boys were systematically murdered and buried in mass graves.
