Mars Mira 2012/ Peace March

The 11th of July marks the anniversary of the genocide that took place in Srebrenica in 1995. More then 8000 men and boys were killed in less then a week... Mars Mira or the Peace March, is a march that goes between Nezuk, near the city of Tuzla and Potocari, outside of Srebrenica. It is about 110km long. This is the reversal of the walk where some men and boys walked for survivals in 1995. On the final day, on July 11th, there is the ceremony at the memorial center in Potocari where the bodies that have been identified during the last year is buried. I will be covering this event, as I did last year. Have a look at out "talking Bosnia" blog for ongoing info....
