Omkring 8000 menn i den bosniske byen Srebrenica ble massakrert av serbiske styrker i juli 1995. Hendelsen er blitt omtalt som vår tids nye folkemord. Men hva var det egentlig som skjedde forut for denne hendelsen? Unike bilder og muslimske kilder avslører en nokså ukjent historie om den blodigste hendelsen i Europa etter andre verdenskrig. For mange folk fra Srebrenica føler at de ble ofret av sine egne ledere.

Citat från Lewis MacKenzie, f d kanadensisk general som arbetade i Bosnien under kriget:

Evidence given at The Hague war crimes tribunal casts serious doubt on the figure of ”up to” 8,000 Bosnian Muslims massacred. That figure includes ”up to” 5,000 who have been classified as missing. More than 2,000 bodies have been recovered in and around Srebrenica, and they include victims of the three years of intense fighting in the area. The math just doesn’t support the scale of 8,000 killed.


It didn’t take long for the Bosnian Muslims to realize that the UN was in no position to live up to its promise to ”protect” Srebrenica. With some help from outsiders, they began to infiltrate thousands of fighters and weapons into the safe haven. As the Bosnian Muslim fighters became better equipped and trained, they started to venture outside Srebrenica, burning Serb villages and killing their occupants before quickly withdrawing to the security provided by the UN’s safe haven. These attacks reached a crescendo in 1994 and carried on into early 1995 after the Canadian infantry company that had been there for a year was replaced by a larger Dutch contingent.
