Srebrenica, Genocide Denial, and Mladic Trial

Srebrenica Genocide Memorial

Here is a post on the issue I mentioned in class today regarding denial of the Srebrenica genocide.

“The cold-blooded murder of 7,000-8,000 Muslim men following the fall of the United Nations “safe area” in July 1995 is probably the most documented war crime in history — but there are still those who insist it never happened.”

Despite the extensive documentation providing the massacre occurred, the ICTY trials of both Karadzic and Mladic will contribute to the factual record of their criminal responsibility for Srebrenica. Trials do help fulfill an essential truth-telling function for victims – even if knowledge does not come from acknowledgment from the perpetrators.

Michael Dobbs explores various issues and news on the Mladic trial on his blog through Foreign Policy magazine online.
