Did you know? Foreshadowing the massacre of 8,000 Bosniak men and boys at Srebrenica, German Nazi forces separated Jewish families and then gunned down some 8,000 Jewish men and boys near Belgrade (Avala massacre) during the first part of World War II. Same genocide awaited Bosniaks of Srebrenica in July of 1995:
On July 11th 2011, we will commemorate the 19th anniversary of the suffering of Bosniak people around Srebrenica and the 16th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide.
In the first three months of the Bosnian war — and three years before the Srebrenica massacre — Serbs killed more than 3,000 Bosniaks around Srebrenica and burned nearly 300 Muslim villages in Srebrenica and neighbouring pre-war districts (Bratunac, Vlasenica, Rogatica and Visegrad).
In July 1995, Serbs forcibly separated Bosniak families, raped hundreds of women and girls, expelled thousands of women and small children (killing them would cause international censure) from the enclave and then proceeded to systematically slaughter 8,372 Bosniak men and boys, disguising the genocidal masacre as a “military operation.”
DO NOT FORGET.
