Every year, on July 11th, Srebrenica remembers one of the most horrific massacres in recent history. In 1995, during the Bosnian war, more than 8,000 Bosniaks – most of them, men – were brutally murdered by Bosnian Serb troops. In this small town of Bosnia and Herzegovina, every year hundreds of bodies are buried in a collective funeral attended silently by thousands of people. Most of them are women, wives, mothers, sisters, daughters, who survived from the murderous fury, and who gather at the memorial of Potocari to bid farewell to their loved ones. This woman is one of the faces of Srebrenica. Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, July 2010 © Luca Bonacini.
