Interactive narrative "Srebrenica: An Eight-Act Genocide"

On the occasion of the 21st anniversary of the massacre of more than 8,000 Muslim men and youths in Srebrenica, the non-governmental organisation Documenta and SENSE - the Centre for Transition Justice - on Friday launched the interactive narrative "Srebrenica: An Eight-Act Genocide", a detailed account of how the UN war crimes tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague investigated, documented and prosecuted the Serb genocide against Bosnian Muslims in 1995.

The narrative, available at, contains, apart from audio-visual presentations of eight segments of the Srebrenica tragedy, a selection of court evidence with some 250 key documents, video-recordings and photographs.

What happened in the area of Srebrenica in seven days of July 1995 was subject to the most extensive criminal investigation conducted in Europe after World War II and it has been reconstructed in detail in a dozen trials before the Hague tribunal, said SENSE head Mirko Klarin.

Klarin said the narrative was motivated by a wish to make the extensive material, available at the Hague tribunal, easier to survey and thus more accessible and visible.
