Mike remembers Srebrenica

Mike Gapes MP has signed the Remembering Srebrenica Book of Pledges, providing his personal comments in commemoration of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide in Bosnia during the Yugoslav civil war.

The book signing took place in the House of Commons during Remembering Srebrenica Memorial Week (6-13 July), when politicians from across the political spectrum paid tribute to the more than 8,000 victims, as well as honoured those left behind and still dealing with the after effects of the genocide.

The UK leads the way in commemorating the genocide, following an EU resolution in 2009 designating the 11 July as Srebrenica Memorial day across the European Union. The charity Remembering Srebrenica organises events to raise awareness of the genocide – the worst atrocity on European soil since the Second World War – and highlights the impact that hatred and intolerance can have on society.
