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 can see pale skin and bones protruding on the face of this Bosniak woman. She is a survivor of the 1992-1995 siege of Srebrenica and the July 1995 genocidal massacre in this 'UN protected' enclave in eastern Bosnia. Serb inflicted widespread starvation of Bosniak refugees in the Srebrenica enclave to suffer tremendously; many of them died of hunger. The photo was taken in Tuzla by photographer Roger Hutchings on July 14, 1995, after the fall of Srebrenica.
