Munira Subasic

Munira Subasic is President of the “Mothers of Srebrenica and Zepa”. She said: “In the Srebrenica genocide I lost twenty-two members of my immediate family, and over a hundred from my extended family. Last year, I buried two tiny bones of my son Nermin, found in two mass graves, twenty-five kilometers apart. And yet, I did not give birth to such a child – my child was born with hands and feet and eyes, a head and all. There. But then again, he is with 6,500 of his friends, neighbours, friends, so I’m at peace, sort of. I have found at least some peace.”

Munira Subasic spoke at the Tenth Forum for Transitional Justice held in Belgrade on November 15-16, 2014.
