Srebrenica Home Movies

The series consisting of 35 video footage covers a wide range of topics including military and civilian life in Srebrenica before the fall of the enclave in July 1995. Some of the amateur footage was shot at parties, wedding ceremonies, community outings, horse races and local sports events to inform family members who had already fled the town. Another group of videos cover the presence of international organizations in the area, including the UNHCR delivering and distributing aid and supplies to the local population, or the building of permanent homes for over 5,000 refugees by the Swedish Shelter Project just outside Srebrenica. A third group consists of footage on military activities such as military drills, interviews with Bosnian Muslim military commanders and other personnel on the causes of the war, the defense of the area, and the latest military operations.
