It’s 3.14am Sarajevo time.

My mind is in so many places, I don’t know what to say.

Until I can formulate a coherent post describing today in Srebrenica, I adopt the words of one of the Mothers of Srebrenica we met and say this:

Why is a two day old baby here with a bullet through his skull?

The wall of death. 16 meters long containing the names and ages of the 8372 killed in the #Srebrenica #Genocide. Amazing exhibition by the brilliant Tarik Samarah #Bosnia #Sarajevo #Art #Exhibition #Gallery #Photography #TariqSamarah

Handmade in Bosnia, the Srebrenica flower is the symbol of the Srebrenica genocide- the worst atrocity in Europe since the Second World War. The flowers have eleven petals reflecting Srebrenica Memorial Day on 11 July and the white and green represent the innocence of those who were killed, as well as hope for the future.
