More about our Trustees.
The Scottish charity coordinates Srebrenica awareness activities in Scotland, commemorations and the Scottish Schools Education programme. It also fundraises and manages the “Lessons of Srebrenica” programme in Scotland. The charity is supported by the Scottish Governments Connecting Communities Fund. It has no paid staff.
Despite only being created in 2015. The charity receives high level support across the political spectrum and is already well established in Scottish civic society.
Remembering Srebrenica [Scotland] is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) No SCO46540.
In July 2015, Scotland marked the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide with a large service within St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh, attended by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP. At this service the First Minister met the Mothers of Srebrenica and pledged to visit them in Bosnia. In August 2016 she fulfilled that promise and visited the Potocari Cemetery further raising the profile of the charity and its work.
The Scottish Board identified the need to become a separate charity in Scotland and created Remembering Srebrenica (Scotland).

This week is #HateCrimeAwarenessWeek2023 A quick #SundayThread Hate crime starts long before you think it does. I use this phrase because it provides opportunities for society to better notice and address early all forms of abuse including hate crime. 1/11
Another feature in today’s @heraldscotland from @MrMcEnaney following his visit to Bosnia earlier in the month as part of our delegation led by @DvdHmltn’s 🏴🇧🇦
In Sarajevo there is a museum dedicated to those who have grown up - or died as children - in war zones. I visited recently with @RemSrebScot and wrote about it for @heraldscotland.
I desperately wish it weren't all so appropriate today.
