This summer sees the 20th anniversary of the massacre at Srebrenica. Eight thousand Europeans were taken outside, their hands carefully tied behind their backs, and Serbian soldiers shot them all in cold blood.

The mass graves had been dug, the exact amount of ammunition to carry out the executions given out, and food and drink brought for the soldiers carrying out this mass murder. It was the worst single massacre by armed security forces of unarmed prisoners since the days of Katyn or the mass killings by Germans in World War II.
