Remember the victims and survivors of the Srebrenica genocide; learn the lessons from Srebrenica, particularly that we must always be vigilant against hatred and intolerance in our communities; and pledge to take action now to build better and safer communities for all.
Remembering Srebrenica's chairman Waqar Azmi founded the initiative in 2013.
- Visits Programme
The visits enable individuals to meet survivors, as well as witnessing programmes such as the work done by the International Commission for Missing Persons in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Individuals applying to take part must pledge to undertake a concrete social action on their return to the UK which challenges hatred and intolerance in their communities. For instance, organising a Srebrenica Memorial Day on 11th July, community events or activities likely to foster greater harmony in our society, educational activity allowing school children and/or students to learn about the consequences of hatred or a creative proposal which helps to make your community a better and safer place. The Remembering Srebrenica team will then follow up with delegates to ensure that their pledges have been successfully fulfilled within a year of their visit. Additionally, Remembering Srebrenica asks delegates to raise funds for the charity in the 12 months after their visit to enable more people to learn the lessons from Srebrenica and help to create a better society. Taking part in a ‘Lessons from Srebrenica’ visit is a powerful experience, which has already inspired hundreds of British people from a diverse range of backgrounds and faiths to take action to change their communities for the better.
