Genocide in Yugoslavia - Collection Finding Aid



This collection consists of records describing the ethnic cleansing that took place in Bosnia and Herzegovina around the town of Srebrenica in July 1995. The massacre of 8,000 Bosnian Muslims that occurred in Srebrenica is the largest mass murder in Europe since World War II. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) deemed it an act of genocide. This collection consists of memoranda, reports, handwritten notes, newspaper articles, correspondence, talking points, cables, and press guidance. A highlight of the records concerns the efforts of the United States and its European allies to bring the perpetrators of genocidal crimes to justice.
