Graffiti by Dutch soldiers is seen on a wall at the former U.N. Safe Zone in Potocari
Graffiti by Dutch soldiers is seen on a wall at the former U.N. Safe Zone in Potocari, near Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, July 4, 2015. In April 1993, the United Nations declared the besieged Muslim part of Srebrenica a safe zone, and Dutch soldiers, also known as the Dutchbat, were sent to ensure peace. Four hundred soldiers sojourned in an accumulator factory. In July 1995, they left after the fall of Srebrenica, and moved to Tuzla to protect the refugees. The Dutchbat left behind a series of graffiti on the walls of the factory, during their two-year stay, painting all kind of motifs. A museum is scheduled to be opened at this site later this year. Family members, foreign dignitaries and guests are expected to attend a ceremony in Srebrenica on July 11, marking the 20th anniversary of the massacre in which Bosnian Serb forces killed up to 8,000 Muslim men and boys. The remains of 136 identified victims will be buried at a memorial cemetery during the ceremony. Their bodies were found in some 60 mass graves around the town. Picture is taken on July 4.
