Bosnian Genocide Survivor Speaks on the Creation of the Srebrenica-Potočari Memorial
Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2022
7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Social justice advocate Hasan Nuhanovic will give a public presentation on the creation of the Srebrenica–Potočari Memorial and Cemetery, which he himself spearheaded. As one of the few survivors of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide in Bosnia, Nuhanovic envisioned the memorial in a primarily Serbian area as a combined “sacral” space with a cemetery and a “memorial” space with historical and archival parts. The virtual presentation will begin at 7 p.m on February 22. Co-Organized by the Department of History and the Center for Judaic, Holocaust and Peace Studies.
