Remembering Srebrenica. Bringing people together to tackle hatred and help build safer, stronger communities.
Each year, the Remembering Srebrenica organisation raise awareness during Srebrenica Memorial Week by collaborating with councils, schools, faith groups and other organisations; with over 1,100 acts of commemoration taking place in 2019.
Inspector John Sacker of Merseyside Police's Community Engagement Team, and a North West Board Member of the organisation writes:
"This year’s Srebrenica Memorial Week will be taking place from 5th July to 12th July where communities across the UK will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the genocide, where over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were murdered, simply because of their faith.
The most prestigious occasion in our calendar is the UK National Srebrenica Memorial Day commemoration which was due to take place at St Paul’s Cathedral in July to mark the 25th anniversary of the genocide.
I am contacting you to make you aware of the range of education resources that we have available for the teaching and commemoration of the Srebrenica genocide, and to enquire as to whether your organisation would like support in delivering some Srebrenica related activities this July."
