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).

Many influential people read this blog. According to Google Analytics, we had approximately 20,000 readers in the last 30 days. By all counts, that's a lot of readers!

One of them was Sanela Catic, aka: Sanela Jenkins. She contacted me through E-mail and updated me about her commitment to Srebrenica.

As you know by now, Sanela Diana Jenkins has invested at least $5 million in philanthropic purposes. She dearly cares about Bosnia, and especially about Srebrenica. I was particularly impressed by her following words:
"I will never forget Bosnia. and I will never forget Srebrenica. I can promise you I will not let world forget Bosnia, Sarajevo or Srebrenica."
On 4 February, genocide survivor Hasan Nuhanovic and his wife visited the UCLA's Sanela Diana Jenkins Clinic on International Justice. Sanela told us it was a very emotional and very inspirational meeting as students listened as Hasan told his story about the 1995 Srebrenica Genocide. Thank you Sanela for hosting this important event! As always, we will keep our readers in touch with Sanela's philanthropic work.

Update from Sanela:
