In the morning the group that participates to the International week in Srebrenica went to visit the Potocari Memorial Center. Some of the 3215 graves have green colored tombstone, the new ones, those which have been graved on 11 July ceremony this year. In that occasion a lot of people from different parts of the world were gathering to give respect and to burry 300 new identified victims.

For Francesco, who was there at the ceremony, today it was second visit to the Potocari Memorial Center. The first impact for him was strong but also confusing; nevertheless he was motivated to search more information about Srebrenica genocide. He read some books, spoke with some people and he decided to participate to the International week “Life and voices of Srebrenica” and visit the Memorial Center again.

It was silent among the 100 persons when Abdulah Majstorovic introduced people to history of the Memorial Center. “Recognition and official excuses are needed in order to forgive but you cannot forget”, said Abdulah inviting people to imagine what happened. The aim of the Memorial Center in Potocari is not only to remind everybody about genocide in Srebrenica but also to avoid indifference to this kind of tragedy all over the world. Abdulah, who survive this genocide, thinks about his family every day. Sharing his memories and feelings he suggests that everybody should try to find own solution, so that this kind of tragedy will never happen again.
