SREBRENICA, Bosnia and Herzegovina
“I will no longer be able to be a mother,” she said in the wake of the disaster.

“I will not have a grandchild. I will not have a son and I will no longer know what all of this happiness means.”
I met Hatidža four years ago when I visited the Srebrenica Memorial, where the victims of the genocide -- the worst massacre on European soil since the Holocaust -- are buried. I remember it vividly. Sitting in a circle of other bereaved and widowed mothers of Srebrenica, quietly and with the utmost dignity, she told her story.
Washington, D.C.: July 11, 2018, 23 years after Srebrenica's Genocide
Today, together with His Excellency Ambassador Haris Hrle, Bosnia and Herzegovina's Ambassador to the United States, Srebrenica genocide survivor Muska Smajlagic, Ida SeferRoche, President of the Bosnian-Americn Genocide Institute (BAGI) and Gideon Culman, one of the founding members of the Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council DC, ACBH commemorated the twenty-third anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide on Capitol Hill.
Twenty-three years after the Srebrenica genocide, and despite the promise of "Never Again," the war in Syria continues to rage with no end in sight, and the Rohingya crisis bears the hallmarks of genocide.
“Baby Muhic, who was born on July 13, 1995, is the youngest, while Saha Izmirlic, born in 1901, is the oldest victim of Srebrenica genocide. They were exhumed from a mass grave found within the of the Battery Factory complex in Potocari [near Srebrenica] in 2012,” said Lejla Cengic, the spokesperson for the Missing Persons Institute.
Patten said that during a visit to Sarajevo in Bosnia-Herzegovina last year she met Alen Muhic, who was born to a rape victim in 1993 during the Bosnian war, and was "very impressed by his resilience, by the work he was doing within the organization Forgotten Children of War."
Chouinard worked in the intensive care unit during her first month, but she also joined an aid supply convoy in Kiseljak, where one of her fellow UN peacekeepers died.

“For me June [1992] was the hardest month, because we lost our colleague who got killed with a handheld grenade launcher,” Chouinard said, explaining how his death made her realise that even UN peacekeepers were not safe from harm in Bosnia’s war.
Investigators from Bosnia’s Missing Persons Institute who search for the remains of war victims have suffered injuries and contracted physical and mental illnesses while conducting exhumations in contaminated and dangerous terrains.

The former, now honorary, Grand Mufti, Dr. Mustafa Ceric, (who is also an international president of Religions for Peace) visited Auschwitz for the first time in February 2011 as part of an interreligious pilgrimage, accompanied by Prof. Semso Ismanovic. Deeply moved by what he saw, Dr. Ceric then declared, “If we had prevented the Holocaust in Auschwitz, we could have prevented the Srebrenica massacre.”
