The Purpose of Holocaust Remembrance Must Be the Prevention of Other Genocides

I am honored to be with you this evening, honored to have been asked to speak to you here in the Hall of Remembrance which, in truth, could and perhaps should be called the Hall of Memory. Why "memory" in an institution devoted to memory? Because memory must come before remembrance.

Why The Srebrenica Massacre Must Be Recognized As A Genocide

I cannot in good conscience mourn my brother as a victim of genocide unless I similarly mourn all other victims of genocide, including the victims at Srebrenica.

Reckless Diplomacy Disguised as Caution Cost Lives in Srebrenica. And It's Happening Again, This Time in Syria

The parallel example for Syria is not Iraq, Afghanistan or Libya -- it's Bosnia. Like the Syrian conflict today, Bosnia saw horrific atrocities, unprecedented numbers of refugees and an exorbitant death toll. Like Syria, the crisis in the Balkans was thought unsolvable and intractable. Bosnia's strongest allies worried that action to protect civilians could escalate the conflict regionally and even globally.

My Remarks Following Russia's Veto of a UN Security Council Resolution Commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the Genocide in Srebrenica

Why would Russia vote to deny recognition of the Srebrenica genocide? Today's vote mattered. It mattered hugely to the families of the victims of the Srebrenica genocide. Russia's veto is heartbreaking for those families, and it is a further stain on this Council's record.

Honoring the Victims and Survivors of the Genocide in Srebrenica

We must never forget the genocide in Srebrenica. We must always honor its victims, its survivors. But we must never forget also that our words will ring hollow if, in the here and now, we don't believe the unbelievable, if we don't end the culture of impunity that exists in so many places around the world, and if we don't strengthen our resolve to protect those who count on us all.

A Century of Genocide and Indifference

The problem appears to be that our repeated declarations of never again are directed at the genocide itself and not at the indifference and cowardice that enabled it. Until that changes, we will continue to live in the Age of Genocide.

Srebrenica Forgiveness!!

Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey | Posted 09.10.2014 | World
Ambassador Muhamed Sacirbey

Every year we commemorate the genocide, we expect that those who betrayed Srebrenica might this time ask for forgiveness from the survivors. Instead, much of Europe appears inclined to forget Srebrenica and punish all Bosnian & Herzegovinians ("BiH") for reminding it of its collective failure to prevent the genocide.

'Justice Is Slow But Reachable': Commemoration Held Near UN in Honor of Srebrenica Genocide Victims

The Srebrenica genocide was a dark chapter in an already nasty Balkan conflict. One group committed ethnic cleansing against another, as a largely passive international community helplessly, and needlessly, watched it from the sidelines.

Munira Subasić, one of the longtime leaders of the group Mothers of Srebrenica and Žepa Enclaves, was burying two small pieces of bone that had belonged to her youngest son -- the only parts of him that have been found and identified using DNA analysis.
