Remembering Srebrenica

Yesterday, we attended the Memorial Day Service to remember all the victims who were killed in the genocide in Srebrenica 24 years ago. The theme of the event was “Bridging the Divide: Confronting Hate”. The event aimed at inspiring people to challenge those who want to create lines of fissures between communities, celebrate those who build bridges between communities and change behaviours and attitudes in others to go out and build bridges of their own. As we commemorate this tragic event, we remember hundreds of thousands of Syrians who sacrificed their souls for the dignity and freedom of all Syrians.
