Srebrenica Massacre: Women Who Refuse to Die

In July 1995, 8,000 Bosniaks (Bosnian Muslims) were killed in and around the town of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The massacre of men and boys was carried out by the Army of Republika Srpska under the command of General Ratko Mladic and was described by the UN Secretary-General as the worst crime on European soil since the Second World War.

In this Al-Jazeera documentary, survivors of the Bosnian War who lost fathers, sons, husbands and loved ones in the massacre reflect on the horror of the past. They struggle to make sense of all that they endured while also looking to the future.
