Srebrenica Anniversary Burial; Srebrenica Bosnia, July 2016

Srebrenica Anniversary Burial; Srebrenica Bosnia, July 2016

Taken on 2016-07-11

This picture was taken on the commemoration of the Srebrenica massacre in the Potocari cemetery in Bosnia-Herzegovina. After the religious celebration, various burials were organized in the cemetery for recently found victim remains. The Srebrenica anniversary and the events surrounding this commemoration have become quite controversial events in the politics of Bosnia. The anniversary itself brings together members of the Bosniak and Bosnian Muslim community to mourn, remember and advocate for the victims of the events of July 11th, 1995. Yet the commemoration tends to be contested by politicians and members of other ethnic groups, showing the social divisions in the country.

Monument Against Republika Srpska in Sarajevo, Bosnia; July 2016

Taken on 2016-07-09

This picture is taken on the weekend previous to the anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre. This is a monument done by a social movement called AntiDayton who insist that the creation of Republika Srpska (RS), one of the two political and administrative entities forming Bosnia-Herzegovina, is a product of ethnic cleansing in the 92 to 95 war. The monument is established as a map of RS and within it are objects that belong to victims of the Srebrenica massacre.

EU Assistance to Balkan Floods 2014

EU Assistance to Balkan Floods 2014

Taken on 2014-05-19

More than the equivalent of 3 months rain during 14-18 May 2004 on the Balkans, the highest rainfall recorded since records started 120 years ago. Tamara, as the cyclone was called, caused severe flooding and land slides in Serbia, Bosnia, and to a lesser degree in Croatia, resulting in over 60 deaths, massive destruction of property, infrastructure, and damage to agriculture. Seemingly unprepared, authorities in Serbia and Bosnia were unable to cope alone with large swaths of territory inundated during the cyclone. They quickly requested international help, including via the EU Civil Protection Mechanism. Within a few hours, the call was answered by Bulgaria, Germany, Slovenia and Austria. By 36 hours, 6 more EU countries responded. Overall 23 EU members out of 28 aided relief efforts. 3 million Euros, 800 relief workers, and 2 EU Civil Protection Teams were dispatched. On 16 July 2014, France and Slovenia cohosted a donors conference.

Balkan Floods 2014 from Space

Balkan Floods 2014 from Space

Taken on 2014-05-18

More than three months worth of rain fell in just a few days in May 2014 in the Balkan Peninsula of Europe, leading to devastating floods and more than 3,000 landslides. The high water wiped out at least 100,000 structures and homes, killed thousands of livestock animals, and exposed or moved many landmines that were set during 1990s warfare. According to news accounts, more than 40 people have died so far and nearly one million have been displaced and/or cut off from clean water supplies. The flooding was caused by an extra-tropical cyclone (Tamara) that pulled in moisture from the Mediterranean Sea for nearly three days. Much of the water has swollen the Sava River, which cuts across the middle of the peninsula. The event is considered the region’s worst flood in more than 120 years of record-keeping. More than 40 percent of Bosnia and Herzegovina was thought to be in some level of flooding.
