In 1995 during the Bosnian War, over 8,000 Bosniak Muslim men and boys in the town of Srebrenica were slaughtered in one of the most devastating acts of genocide in recent memory. The 11th of July is Srebrenica Memorial Day, an opportunity to commemorate the victims of ethnic cleansing and learn from survivors. The theme for 2021 is Rebuilding Lives.
There will be a memorial event held at Masjid Alhikmah to mark the occasion on Sunday 11th July from 6.30pm, organised by GREC in partnership with local Mosques from across Aberdeen City.
Speakers for the event include: representatives of the Aberdeen Interfaith Committee; Imam Ibrahim from Aberdeen Mosque & Islamic Centre; Lord Provost of Aberdeen Barney Crockett; and Robert McNeil MBE, a Scottish Forensic Technician that worked in Bosnia for a number of years following the genocide.
The event is free but registration is required:
