Join the commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre - lest we forget

Hasan Hasanovic

Next week marks the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, which saw the killing of 8000 Bosnian Muslims. Commemorations will take place around the world to mark this anniversary, a reminder of how quickly division and prejudice can turn into killing and genocide.  The lessons of the past must not be forgotten. 

ATUC is urging all our delegates and affiliates to join the commemoration organised by Interfaith Scotland in partnership with Remembering Srebrenica Scotland. This will be an online engagement event on 8 July 2020 at 4 pm on the 25th Anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide. The guest speaker will be the survivor and acclaimed author, Hasan Hasanovic.
Hasan was 19 when the town of Srebrenica fell to Bosnian Serb forces in July 1995. He endured a 100 kilometre march through hostile terrain to escape the massacre that took the lives of around 8000 Muslim men and boys, including his brother and father.
