BOSNIANS IN ST. LOUIS
REMEMBER
SREBRENICA

The largest Bosnian refugee community
in the United States is located in St. Louis
(an estimated 40,000 since 1995.)

20 years ago, in July 1995, General Ratko Mladic
and his Serbian paramilitary units captured
the village of Srebrenica and systematically
massacred more than 8,000 Bosnian men and boys.

It was the greatest atrocity on European soil
since the Second World War.

Most of our Bosnian community gathered yesterday
to commemorate lost loved ones, and 
NEVER FORGET.

They are a proud and wonderful asset to our city!

  4. Some humans are not humans, it is terrible to think that at the 21rst century we still force war onto other populations.
    How many Srebrenicas are going on in the world as we publish our posts?....
    So sad.
