Illinois Holocaust Museum: Witnessing the Struggle for Justice

Dear Friends and Allies,

Since our inception almost a decade ago, we have been dedicated to combating genocide denial through education and activism and this year we continue with this vital work. Considering the massive amounts of misinformation about the genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina we are committed to providing accessible educational programming to preserve the memory of those we lost and honor those who survived.

January 9th, while celebrated as the birth of Republika Srpska, the smaller entity within Bosnia and Herzegovina, is in truth the beginning of the aggression particularly against Bosnian Muslims in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This year, we commemorate this day on behalf of all witnesses. For all people who were courageous to share their experiences despite threats and intimidation.

Join us for a free and unique program opportunity at the Illinois Holocaust Museum on January 10th, 2019 at 6:30pm.
