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.

Remembrance in Visegrad, Eastern Bosnia; June 2016

Taken on 2016-06-14

This picture is taken during a remembrance act done in the town of Visegrad, comnemorating the Pionirska street fire where around 70 Bosniaks were set on fire during the war. This picture is taken after a march through the town organized by a local victim organization. The banner pretty much tells the tale of the Lukic cousins and their war crimes in this city. They were both processed and sentenced by the ICTY.

Srebrenica: Where modernity meets atrocity; Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Aug 2015

Taken on 2015-08-28

This picture was taken in August, 2015 in Sarajevo. It marks the commemoration of the Srebrenica genocide, and of particular attention is that the message is displayed between a modern shopping centre (an example of the reconstruction process and the interest in vitalizing entrepreneurial practices in Bosnia) and very close to the are where various agencies such as the OSCE and the EU mission in Bosnia have their offices.
