In July 1995, the Army of the Serbian Republic killed some 8,000 Bosnian men and boys in and around the town of Srebrenica—the largest mass murder in Europe since World War II. Surviving the Bosnian Genocide is based on the testimonies of 60 female survivors of the massacre who were interviewed by Dutch historian Selma Leydesdorff. The women, many of whom still live in refugee camps, talk about their lives before the Bosnian war, the events of the massacre, and the ways they have tried to cope with their fate. Though fragmented by trauma, the women tell of life and survival under extreme conditions, while recalling a time before the war when Muslims, Croats, and Serbs lived together peaceably. By giving them a voice, this book looks beyond the rapes, murders, and atrocities of that dark time to show the agency of these women during and after the war and their fight to uncover the truth of what happened at Srebrenica and why.

All people are born free All people are equal before God All people are innocent until proven guilty All people are good until some do evil All people are rigteous until some do te unrigteous All men of Srebrenica were alive until some were murdered All people are innocent until tose wo committed crimes are judged Evil is forever, but not absolute Good is absolute, but sometimes absent.
We ave come ere to listen To tose wo cried for elp To te Heaven and te Eart To te Day and to te Nigt To te Word and to te Omnipotent. In order tat te sword be taken away From tose wo ave murdered during te day and te nigt. We ave come ere To see te trut wit our own eyes, about ourselves and about tem.
Teac us tat tolerance is te igest form of power And te desire to wreak vengeance he first sign of weakness.
If we sin against people Give us te strengt to ask forgiveness If people sin against us Give us te strengt to forgive!
May grief become ope! May revenge become rigteousness! May te tears of te moters become prayers hat Srebrenica never appens again.
—IMAM CEKIĆ, reis-ul-ulema of Bosnia-Herzegovina, at te memorial for Srebrenica, July , 
