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).

Association of Young Bosniaks in Turkey remembers Srebrenica with a project simply called '8372...':

"The aim of our project is to honor the people who are so often named with the number of 8372... which is used because number of victims is not final. We must take this number and those lives, victims of the perpetrators and bystanders with respect. It is important for all Turkey to be included in this project, and to bind itself by heart. It is the only way to understand what wrong leadership means. We are going to be engaged more to build better future, and not let escalation of violence ever happen again, neither in the Balkans nor anywhere else in the world. That is the most important message of the '8372…' Project.″

According to the Turkish Weekly, the initiator of this wonderful project is Enisa Begic.
