The Srebrenica genocide perpetrated against male Muslim civilians was the worst war crime committed in Europe since the Second World War. On July 11, 1995, Serbian troops based in the mountains surrounding Srebrenica entered the town. All boys and men aged 14 to 65 were separated from the women, children and elders, deported and massacred. Of the over 8,000 victims of the massacre, only a few thousand families have been able to bury their loved ones.
Since 2003, the year in which a Memorial was opened in the presence of the U.S. President Clinton, a long and ongoing funeral has been celebrated.
The slow and long process of reconstruction and identification through DNA testing of the fragments of the bodies seems to have no end. On 2010, the fifteenth anniversary of the genocide, more than 700 bodies were put to rest.
