Nermin. Ramo. Srebrenica 1995

'Nermin! come here, they will help us, we are safe'. This is roughly what Ramo said shouted to his son, in order to make him come forward. Ramos, as well as his son was exhausted. He was most likely hungry and thirsty after having walked for two days. A week earlier (On July 6th), he and his wife, Saliha Osmanovic had buried their youngest son, Edin who was killed by a grenade. They, together with over a thousand others, had been walking for two days- trying to escape from the Bosnian Serb forces who had taken Srebrenica on July 11th 1995. When Ramo screams out for his son, they have all been captured. Most of them were likely killed in what is known as the Kravica massacre. They are standing near Kamenice, not far from Kravica, around 45 minutes drive from Srebrenica.
Ramo shouts the name of his son, Nermin, while being filmed by a Bosnian Serb soldier and having a gun pointed at him. The footage is shown at the Potocari Memorial centre, just outside Srebrenica.
