Mars Mira (Peace March) between Nzuk (Near Tuzla) and Potocari/ Srebrenica.

This year again, the Mars Mira, will take place between Tuzla (Nzuk)  and Srebrenica (Potocari). It is a 120km walk that follows the steps of the men and boys and some women who tried to escape from Mladic's forces in July 1995. The final day, on July 10th, the walk ends in Potocari where the following day, the 11th, marks 19 years since the Genocide took place in Srebrenica. The burial of the dead will then take place in a ceremonial funeral.
In the evenings after each day of walking, survivors shares their stories to the walkers.
