UK National Srebrenica Memorial Day took place on 8 July – it was one of nearly a thousand Memorial events and activities taking place across the UK which has brought communities together in a collective act of remembrance.
The Ceremony is available to watch again here at srebrenica.org.uk/ceremony. Our Trustee, Eileen Chan, attended the memorial day on behalf of New Europeans UK at the invitation of Dr Waqar Azmi OBE, Chairman of Remembering Srebrenica UK.
We encourage you to share this link with as many people as possible so that they have the opportunity to hear the powerful and inspiring testimony of survivors of genocide and ethnic cleansing from both Bosnia and the UK.
