A Mass in remembrance of the victims of the Srebrenica massacre will be held at St Chad's Cathedral at 11.30am on Sunday 4 July.

The charitable organisation Remembering Srebrenica has asked for support for this year’s Srebrenica Memorial Week, which runs from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July.

Communities across the UK will commemorate the 26th anniversary of the genocide, where over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were murdered, simply because of their faith.

The theme for 2021 is ‘Rebuilding Lives’. In albeit very different ways the Covid-19 pandemic has brought loss and difficulties to millions, shattering individuals and communities, who are now looking to rebuild their lives. As we move forwards to rebuilding our communities in the wake of the many health and economic challenges which people with divisive agendas are all too keen to exploit, we will remember the spirit of survivors who, despite the horrendous hatred and destruction they were subjugated to themselves, have been rebuilding their lives with dignity, humanity and without calling for retribution or promoting division or hatred.

Remembering Srebrenica has produced a number of resources which can be used in support of the Memorial Week.
