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).

"You will be able to see, what Tony Birtley described, as 'the sheer panic and the desperation of the people. And to see women to throw their babies into the back of trucks and hope that someone will grab them and take them to safety.' In addition, there are very rare scenes of Srebrenica defenders, including a battle tank they managed to capture from the Serbs."
