Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica Massacre, which was a part of the larger Bosnian Genocide undertaken by the Republika Srpska. In an enclave protected by the UN, Serbian armed forced brutally attacked and killed several innocent Bosnians — men, women, children, no one was spared.

To remember all those who lost their lives in this genocide, an exhibition titled “Mass Graves in Bosnia and Herzegovina” was held, first at the Gazi Husrev Beg Library, and then at the City Museum in Sarajevo. The good folks of Islamic Arts Magazine were present there to click photographs of the exhibition.

In this post, I have put together some of the photos clicked at the exhibition, to help you get a better perspective on the tragic turn of events.
