25 years later: Remembering the Srebrenica genocide (July 9)

JULY 9, 2020

The people of the United States are honoring the memory of those who lost their lives 25 years ago in the Srebrenica genocide. In July 1995, more than 8,000 innocent victims were killed at the town of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This painful event must never be forgotten and we must ensure that a tragedy like Srebrenica is never repeated.
