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).

The National Endowment for Democracy’s Ivana Howard offered insights to USHMM's Bridget Conley-Zilkic on how this agreement has structured post-war Bosnia and why it is inadequate to take the country into the future.
