Exploring the Aftermath of War on Anniversary of Srebrenica Massacre in Bosnia

A Bosnian Muslim widow examines body bags containing the remains of recently exhumed victims of the 1992 “ethnic cleansing” campaign waged by Serbs against their Muslim neighbors (July 2001). Exhumations of mass graves began in 1996 and are expected to last for many years to come. Nearly 30,000 Bosnian Muslims—most of them civilians—were listed as missing at the end of the war; most are believed to have been victims of “ethnic cleansing.” Photo courtesy of Sara Terry and the Aftermath Project. This month marks the 19th anniversary of the Srebrenica Massacre in Bosnia, which has been called the worst crime on European soil since World War II.
