DID YOU KNOW?  -- Three years before the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide, Serbs torched Bosniak villages and killed at least 3,166 Bosniaks around Srebrenica. In 1993, the UN described the besieged situation in Srebrenica as a "slow-motion process of genocide." In July 1995, Serbs forcibly expelled 25,000 Bosniaks, brutally raped many women and girls, and systematically killed 8,000+ men and boys (DNA confirmed).

Recently, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum invited Hasan Nuhanovic to come for an interview and give his perspective on the arrest of the Srebrenica genocide architect Radovan Karadzic (photo). The Holocaust memorial has dedicated a special room in the Museum to commemorate victims of the Srebrenica genocide.

Voices on Genocide Prevention is bi-weekly audio series and podcast service, hosted by Committee on Conscience Project Director Bridget Conley-Zilkic, that brings you the voices of human rights defenders, experts, advocates, and government officials.

Hasan Nuhanovic’s family was killed by the Bosnian Serb forces when they overran the UN declared safe haven of Srebrenica in July 1995 and slaughtered more than 8,000 people, including at least 500 children. Mindful of international public opinion they proceeded to complete the ethnic cleansing of the enclave by deporting the thousands of women and children from the enclave (see Appeals' Judgment, Prosecutor vs Krstic).
