Commemorating the 23rd anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide
We invite you to mark the anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide with discussion, testimonials from survivors and a symbolic walk.
In July 1995, the small town of Srebrenica witnessed the genocide of thousands of Muslim Bosniak boys and men. They were targeted for cultural and religious reasons by the Bosnian Serb Army of Republika Srpska during the Bosnian War.
This memorial event will include discussion on the Srebrenica massacre, the sharing of survivor testimonies as well as a symbolic walk around The Forks National Historic Site.
This event is taking place in partnership with the Bosnia and Herzegovina Association of Manitoba.
Date: Wednesday, July 11, 2018
Time: 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Location: Manitoba Teachers’ Society Classrooms on Level 1
