Former HQ Dutchbat in Srebrenica, Bosnia, becomes memorial center
Over 8,000 Bosniak men were executed by the Bosnian Serb Army in the enclave of Srebrenica in 1995. These killings became the single largest massacre to take place on the European continent since World War II. Inside a former battery factory, where the Serbs separated families before the executions, the Srebrenica Potocari Memorial Center & Cemetery, offers a space for remembrance and the on-site cemetery serves as a final resting place for many of those massacred. In the Spomen Soba (Memorial Room), visitors can hear testimonials, watch film installations, and view recovered artifacts. Inside the factory are still drawings and grafitti from the dutch UN soldiers, Dutchbat. They will be preserved as being part of the memorial.
