In 1995 more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims, mainly men and boys, were killed in and around the town of Srebrenica by units of the Army of Republika Srpska under the command of General Ratko Mladić. The mass murder is considered and act of genocide and was described by the Secretary-General of the United Nations as the worst crime on European soil since the Second World War.
This was the first time that the ceremonies will take place while the Bosnian Serb political leader Radovan Karadazic and military leader, General Ratko Mladić are on trial at the Hague. Over 400 remains were buried in the special cemetery dedicated to the victims.
Ron Haviv spent several years in Bosnia documenting the war. He was outside Srebrenica as the survivors left the enclave in 1995. He returns 18 years later to complete the story.
