Twenty-five years ago, the worst crime in post-World War II Europe took place - in Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serb forces killed more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys.
A quarter of a century after the Srebrenica massacre, young people in the Balkans are appealing to the world: "You should not forget what happened. "Because if we forget those things, they can happen again, and a Srebrenica must never happen to anyone again."
In the eastern part of the country, in the small town of Srebrenica, in July 1995, the worst crime in Europe took place since World War II. Serbian forces killed more than 8,000 Muslim men and boys there. International courts have branded this massacre of civilians genocide.
"Europe has failed in Srebrenica," Gudrun Steinacker told DW. The former diplomat, the last ambassador to Northern Macedonia and Montenegro, who is considered one of the best experts in German diplomacy in the Balkans, is sure: "After four years of war and ethnic cleansing and concentration camps, mass persecution and mass rape, it should have been known what can happen.
