Ethnic cleansing and genocide in the Balkans

Ethnic cleansing in the Balkans was carried out during the war that broke out between the countries that made up Federal Yugoslavia (Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia). Violence and political tensions bloodied the area between 1990 and 1999.

Two are the most well-known episodes of the conflict in the area: the siege of Sarajevo, the longest in contemporary history (from 5 April 1992 to 29 February 1996), and the Srebrenica genocide, in which on 11 July 1995 the troops of the General Mladic entered the town and killed 8372 Muslim men and boys.

We have collected the testimonies of the conflict, thanks also to the President of Gariwo Sarajevo, Svetlana Broz, and followed the slow process of international justice against those responsible for the violence.
