#BosniaWarJournalists

In Srebrenica in 1995, 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were killed by Serb Military and Paramilitary units under the direct command of the Government of Serbia led by Slobodan Milosevic in what the International Criminal Court labeled a genocide. After this war crime, Peter Handke, the recipient of the 2019 Nobel Prize for Literature, traveled through Serbia, writing a text subtitled “Justice for Serbia.” He later spoke at the funeral of Slobodan Milosevic, the former president of the Republic of Serbia who was tried for crimes against humanity in The Hague, but who died before a verdict was reached.

On December 10, the day Handke received the Nobel Prize, reporters and photographers who documented these crimes used the hashtag #bosniawarjournalists to testify to what happened during that war and its aftermath.

VII Photo Agency Director and Co-Founder, Gary Knight, posted this photograph of his friend Mevludin Oric. Mevludin survived a mass execution at Srebrenica by falling to the ground when the machine guns opened up and spent the night hiding under his cousin’s body. He relives that experience every day
