CHURCH: SERB THUGS INTIMIDATE SREBRENICA SURVIVORS
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).
|Provocation: Local Serbian fascists have illegally (with no permission from Srebrenica authorities) built this church next to Srebrenica's Budak mass grave in the immediate vicinity of the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial in a purely Muslim settlement and for the whole purpose of intimidating and humiliating victims and survivors of the Siege of Srebrenica (1992-1995) and the July 1995 Srebrenica massacre.

The victims of the Srebrenica massacre are buried at the memorial centre, and the Bosniaks who were found in a mass grave after -- being tortured and executed -- are buried near the church as well. Mejra lost two sons and her husband during the 1992-95 Bosnian Genocide.|
