Memory in the Face of Denial: Srebrenica 25 Years Later

Denial is the final stage of genocide. Denial by perpetrators, whether by words or by taking steps to cover their acts, or even refusing to recognize atrocities years later, impacts the memory of genocide.

Join Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute and Education Center (BAGI), and Srebrenica Memorial Center for a thought-provoking discussion between eyewitnesses of the genocide in Srebrenica as they powerfully share their experiences during the genocide, and their fight to combat the state of denial 25 years later.
