This year marks the 20th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica – the biggest crime committed on European soil since World War II.
On this occasion, as a part of this campaign – 20 years since the genocide in Srebrenica, every 11th of the month, the Association for Social Research and Communications (UDIK) and the organizations in the region organize various activities.
Today, on June 11th, 2015, the Association for Social Research and Communications (UDIK) sent a request to members of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina in order to declare July 11th as the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Genocide in Srebrenica.
Last month UDIK sent a request to the Assembly of Brcko District B&H and today UDIK sent it to the Presidency considering that Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia, but also Montenegro neglecting this issue are involved in the politics of denial of genocide in Srebrenica. This issue is a question of moral and political responsibility to the victims who were killed in Srebrenica, and now in these months it is necessary to show more respect for the victims and their families and not to include them in politicization.
Forgetting a crime is the first step for its repetition, and for victims the oblivion is even worse than the crime.
