This year Bosnians and Herzegovinians commemorate the 20th anniversary of one of the 20th centuri’s most heinous war crimes. On July 11th, 1995 more than 8000 Muslims men and boys were separated from their mothers, daughters and wives and systematically executed in a genocidal attach in the Bosnian “safe area” of Srebrenica.
Srebrenica was an act of genocide. It was also an act of betrayal by the international community. For three years, the people of Bosnia demanded protection from slaughter, rape and starvation.
For three years, cautious diplomats heard the cries but refused to take decisive action. It was only after Srebrenica that NATO, led by the United States, intervened decisively to stop the Bosnian-Serb onslaught.
