20 years ago

A few years ago this week, I joined a pastor and a journalist on a pilgrimage of sorts, to the small town of Srebrenica in eastern Bosnia. We were traveling to attend the annual memorial service. Each year as more remains are found they are buried in the cemetery that has become a national memorial.

Because we were traveling to the memorial service, and there was an American in the car. The car we were in was subjected to a very thorough search and my fellow travelers were carefully questioned at the border. This delay caused us to miss much of the service but we found the service on the radio.

This film is a reminder from that day.

There are many events remembering that atrocity of 20 years ago this week. This is a report from the BBC from London today.
