Expanding upon our special gallery exhibit, Survival in Sarajevo: La Benevolencija, we are featuring the documentary Srebrenica: A Cry from the Grave which examines the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina and its aftermath.
Originally produced for the BBC, A Cry from the Grave tells the story of the worst genocide in Europe since World War II. In July 1995, despite Srebrenica’s status as the world’s first United Nations Safe Area, the Bosnian Serb army occupied the area and immediately separated its Muslim residents from their neighbors. Over a period of five days, the soldiers and Serbian paramilitary forces systematically executed over 8,000 Muslims, mostly men and boys.
Narrated by Bill Moyers, A Cry from the Grave tells the story of this massacre through the testimony of survivors and relatives of those who were murdered. The film includes previously unseen footage, as well as interviews with UN officials.
