This years Srebrenica Memorial Week runs from 5th -12th July when Communities from across the U.K. will remember the 25th Anniversary of the genocide when over 8,000 Muslim Bosnian men & boys were murdered because of their faith.
Over the 25 years since this atrocity many organisations, schools Councils & Faith groups have held events to mark the occasion & Wolverhampton Interfaith would request your involvement.
An event was planned this year in St Paul’s Cathedral but because of the Covid-19 situation this has been postponed until 2021 but we would encourage everyone to light a candle on:
Sunday 5th July at 7.00pm
And join together in the Srebrenica Prayer if you wish:
We pray to almighty God
May grievance become hope
May revenge become justice
May mother’s tears become prayers
That Srebrenica never happens again
To no one, no where.
By lighting the candle we remember the 8,372 mainly men & boys who were murdered on 11th July 1995
We remember the Mothers of Srebrenica who grieve every day & fight for truth & justice & all those displaced & affected by atrocity.
When we hear the language of ‘Us & them’ we will reach out & find common ground with our neighbour.
We will challenge discrimination wherever we see it.
