Breaking the silence: a blog by Nedžad Avdić
This week the Woolf Institute is honoured to host a blog by Nedžad Avdić, a survivor of Srebrenica who is now committed to educating others to prevent future genocide.
Recalling his experiences Nedžad wrote: "After July 1995, I felt that on mentioning the word of Srebrenica, it was enough to be silent. And I was silent for almost twenty years." When Nedžad broke his silence, however, he did so to educate others and is now a powerful spokesperson for genocide prevention and the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.
Nedžad Avdić will shortly be contributing to a Woolf Institute Peace and Reconciliation Workshop, which all are welcome to attend.
