July 11th is coming up- Anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.

July 11th marks the anniversary of the worst genocide that took place in Europe after the second world war. This year again, walkers will follow the foot steps of the people who tried to escape to safety by walking from Srebrenica to Tuzla (120 km), the next "UN safe area" during July 1995. Around 8000 men and boys got killed during a few summer weeks.
