Remembering Srebrenica

It remains one of the darkest pages in Dutch history: the Srebrenica massacre in July 1995, when the Dutch peacekeeping force did next to nothing to prevent the killing of over 8000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys by units of the Bosnian Serbian army under Ratko Mladic. Eighteen years after the genocide, it is back in the news, due to a mass funeral of 409 newly identified victims. As always, all rights retained by the photographer (Dado Ruvic/Reuters).
