20 YEARS LATER: REMEMBERING SREBRENICA

On July 11 & 12 the Bosnian-American Community of the Cedar Valley and the Bosniak-American Association of Iowa held events across Iowa to remember the 20th Anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide, the worst tragedy in Europe since WWII.
 
The Cedar Valley program was held at Gallagher Bluedorn on the campus of UNI. The public's response far exceeded expectations with over 700 joining to remember the innocent lives lost and to spread a message of unity. The Bluedorn event was followed by a march along the Cedar River, with a religious ceremony and potluck at the Bosniak Mosque in Waterloo.
 
In Des Moines, the event was held at the State of Iowa Historical Building, featuring a panel of Genocide Survivors along with many distinguished speakers connecting the Genocide in Bosnia to the current status of Bosnians in America, and more particulary Iowa.
