MARCUS TANNER REMEMBERS SREBRENICA
PHOTO: On 13 April 1993, the Bosnian Serbs attacked Srebrenica's elementary school, killing 62 Bosniak children and wounding 152 others. The following video is a courtesy of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and a testimony of Christiane Amanpour. This massacre occurred more than two years before the Srebrenica genocide. The child covered in blood is Sead Bekric, see video.
"No one who ever got into besieged Srebrenica will forget it. Crammed with Muslim refugees from all over eastern Bosnia, the price of its resistance to the surrounding Bosnian Serbian army was unbelievable suffering.
On 28 November 1992, I got into Srebrenica, eight months into the siege, with the first UN aid convoy. We drove past a gauntlet of Serbian women, screaming abuse, spitting and shouting 'No food for Muslims!' The relief felt in the town was enormous. People ran out of their houses, crying. They thought the world had woken up to their plight. They were famously wrong."
Bosnian Muslims Will Not Forget Their Suffering.
