Tragically, just over 40 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, genocide returned to Europe when over 8,000 Bosniak men and boys were murdered by Serb forces from 11-22 July 1995. You can learn more about what happened on the website of the charity Remembering Srebrenica.

Several members of the Forum have visited Srebrenica in recent years, and the above photograph was taken by Co-Chair Heather Fletcher when she was there. This year sees the 25th anniversary of this terrible crime.

On Sunday 19 July the Forum will be holding an online commemoration event. The confirmed speakers are:

Recording

We record the whole of each Zoom event for our confidential files.

On our website, we publish the recording of the official speakers. You can see an example by watching the video embedded on the page "Has the COVID-19 crisis strengthened or weakened people's faith?"

As you will see, the recording includes those participants using video to attend but not their names or their words. (We will not use your words without obtaining your express permission.) If you do not wish your moving image to be included in the video recording, please attend without using video at your end. That does not prevent you watching the speakers.

What if I have never used Zoom before?

Zoom is an online video conferencing service. A basic Zoom account is free. In any event you can register to attend our event using the above link without having an account.

If you use a smartphone or tablet, you must download and install the Zoom app to participate. We recommend installing the Zoom app and testing it out in advance of the event.

If you use a computer, you can participate just using your web browser. However there is also a downloadable Zoom app for computers which we recommend using.
