Kada Hotic

Kada Hotic from Srebrenica, member of the Mothers of Srebrenica and Zepa, lived with her husband Senad and son Samir in Srebrenica. Both were killed between July 11-17, 1995.
“He never came back, not even today… I got courage, strength to fight and look for the missing, to look for the perpetrators. I got tougher, I cry a little, and then I say again – at least I am not ashamed of anyone. No one in my family was a criminal. In praise of dear Allah, no one. I have my suffering, my tears, my pain. But how does a criminal fall asleep when the images start coming back? I say, that’s harder for him. We received a letter from Vlasenica in which one such man described a similar life, a life that I would never want anyone to have, even the those who killed my child.”

Kada Hotic testified at the Tenth Forum for Transitional Justice.

This testimony is available in Bosnian language.
