From Srebrenica 2007: A mass funeral

Srebrenica July 11 2007: A mass funeral and a remembrance of things not so past.

Some of the caskets waiting to be hoisted on the shoulders of family and then passed through the crowds on the way to their graves. Sometimes the caskets only contain a portion of the body because skeletal remains were reburied and, in the course of so doing, were destroyed. Over 400 of these were buried.

Thank you so much for these photos Deborah.

A marble stone at the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial Center Potocari is engraved with 8,370 names ranging from children to the elderly.

I was thinking about making a donation to the Albanian American Civic League. Or is there a better way to show support for those killed?

Jay: I decided to post your comment because it speaks for itself and illustrates how such horrors are spawned.
