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).

Art is subjective. Everyone interprets art in their own way, and it may be different than what the artist's vision is. Here is one of the most captivating photos of the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial we have seen so far. The following photo, taken by Nicole Tung, is reminiscent of a grim road leading to the concentration camp where tortured souls of the Srebrenica Genocide victims rest in peace. You may have a different view of what the photo represents. After all, different views of art contribute to the beauty of art.
