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).

Please consider donating to the Srebrenica Memorial Quilt. Let us memorialize names of 8,372 Srebrenica genocide victims forever.

“To our dearest who have not come yet – let us write
their names again, let us write them in love.”

Remzija Dudic was pregnant at the time of the Srebrenica massacre. She was killed alongside her husband Nijazija Dudic. She was born on July 11, 1975 and she was killed on July 11 1995.

Thanks to Advocacy Project and friends like you, 8,372 victims of the Srebrenica genocide will never be forgotten.

I invite all of you to pick one name amongst 8,372 names of the genocide victims, and help Srebrenica women 'engrave' it into their beautiful quilts. The cost to memorialize one name is only $50. If that's too much for you to donate, then please consider donating ANY AMOUNT you can. It feels good to help and it will make you even more proud of yourself and your dignified actions.

The Srebrenica Memorial Quilt campaign is spearheaded by the Washington-based Advocacy Project. TIf you have means to do so, please consider doing it. There is no higher moral satisfaction than empowering women to continue fighting for justice.

The quilt currently comprises 85 panels, each commemorating a victim of the massacre. It has been made by weavers from the Bosnian women’s group BOSFAM, who themselves lost relatives in the Srebrenica massacre. BOSFAM motto is: “To our dearest who have not come yet – let us write their names again, let us write them in love.”

What if I don't have money to help?
Please consider contacting Bosniak lobby groups and urging them to donate funds to the campaign. For example, you may wish to contact the Bosniak American Advisory Council for Bosnia-Herzegovina in Washington, DC (
E-mail BAACBH Executive Director) and ask them to help (they are well funded). You may also wish to contact Sanela Diana Jenkins Foundation. If you
have time, you can locate other advocacy groups and organizations and ask them to help.
