This July marks the 27th Anniversary of the culmination of the Bosnian Genocide in the town of Srebrenica. The Bosnian war exposed just how vulnerable and fragile society can be and that we must never be complacent or take peace for granted. One of the key lessons from Bosnia is that peace is more than just the absence of war: it is our everyday actions through which war is made less likely.

We hope by bringing people of faith and of none together, we can rediscover our commonalities, challenge hatred and intolerance, and encourage personal acts of peace in our everyday lives here in the UK.

The evening will feature testimonies from Bosnian survivors, including readings, poems, performances and films.

Bosnian food, prepared by the local Bosnian community, and light refreshments will be available from 6.00pm.

All are welcome and admission is free for this powerful evening of remembrance, inspiration and unity, please register through Eventbrite (click on button opposite), as places are limited.

If you would like more information email: or visit the Bosnian Genocide Educational Trust website.
