Srebrenica memorial photos
By Peter Lippman, September-October 2008


View of Srebrenica from the south looking north. Restored White Mosque "Bijela Dzamija" in the foreground.

 


A view of most of the Memorial Center and cemetery, looking from south to north.

 


A section of the cemetery with fresher graves of victims more recently identified, reburied July 11th, 2008

 


Entrance to the Srebrenica Memorial Center and cemetery at Potocari. In the foreground is the cornerstone for the center, laid 2001. Behind it to the right is a new stone inscribed with a relatively recent estimate of the number of victims of the massacres. To the right are some of the graves.

 


The inscribed stone lists some of the municipalities from which victims of the Srebrenica massacre originated.
The inscription at bottom right reads, "8372...total number of victims, which is not final."

 


One of several panels listing the victims' names in alphabetical order.

 


A close-up of one of the panels.

 


Another view of the panels with names.
