Full description
After more than three years of the war in Bosnia, on July 11, 1995, Srebrenica was attacked. Most importantly, it was a city in East Bosnia which the UN designated to be a protected area in the war. Finally, it became the stage of the worst crimes against humanity. Armed soldiers and paramilitary units killed more than 8,000 people in the following days. While there, you are going to see a huge graveyard where the victims are buried. The High Representative Wolfgang Petritsch established the memorial and the museum in 2001 as a part of the Foundation “Srebrenica-Potocari”. Today, the complex serves as a warning and a memory for all the victims of Srebrenica Genocide. US President, Bill Clinton officially opened the memorial in 2003. From that year onwards, there were successive burials of hundreds of victims every year. The atrocity was on such a massive scale that the experts are still disinterring and identifying the victims from mass graves in the area around the river Drina. You are going to see a lot of original photo and video exhibitions in the Memorial that will help you understand the level of crimes that happened there. Beside the memorials, this tour covers many tragic stories from the 90s. Surely, after meeting the survivor of Srebrenica genocide your perspective of this human tragedy will affect you and will probably change the perception you had before. Later, our guide will show you life after genocide since this tour will continue towards Srebrenica town. We will show you the springs of healthy water in the area around the city. This water contains two-valency fero, cobalt, nickel, copper, manganes etc. It is very healthy and has big potential in developing this area in the future. Return to Sarajevo is around 5 pm.
