Remembering Srebrenica and the University of Bedfordshire are pleased to be hosting two survivors from the 1990s war in Bosnia, as well as academics and experts who reported from Bosnia during the conflict, working tirelessly to shine a light on what has been described as the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War.
Speakers will include:
- Former BBC War Correspondent Martin Bell who was injured delivering a news bulletin from Sarajevo during the Bosnian war
- Nedžad Avdić who aged 17 survived the Srebrenica death march and firing squads
- Resad Trbonja who as a teenage boy had his life turned upside down fighting in the Siege of Sarajevo
- Dr Waqar Azmi OBE is the founder and chairman of Remembering Srebrenica where he campaigns to raise awareness of the Srebrenica genocide and the lessons it can bring to the UK to create more cohesive communities
The event aims to bring together leading figures to speak on events in Bosnia in the 1990s in order to reflect on the past, and learn lessons from history to tackle on-going challenges in the world today.
