In July 1995, over 8,000 people in Srebrenica were killed by Serb forces. The Srebrenica-Potocari Memorial and Cemetery for the Victims of the 1995 Genocide was established in September 2003. Over 6,000 victims have been buried at this site with additional victims buried each year as remains are identified.
