Today is a sad day in Bosnia and Herzegovina since we are remembering all the victims of genocide committed by Serbians on innocent Muslims in Srebrenica. Each year new remains, taken from mass grave locations are being identified and buried in the Memorial Center in Potočari in Srebrenica. We are presenting the photos taken by Tarik Samarah, a well known Bosnian photographer.
