Facts

Our goal was to investigate and present in an objective manner the suffering of all peoples in the Srebrenica region.

We deeply sympathize with the victims and the families of the victims who died during the terrible civil war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and as well express our great respect for them. We are aware that such pain is a lasting one and we believe that all victims should be equally respected and remembered. In order to reconcile the affected parties, it is important not to diminish the sufferings and perils of either party.

The Commission is aware that researching each individual event and victim would require many years of systematic research.

All that by a much larger number of experts, and in this regard encourages all scientific institutions and organizations as well as individuals from the scientific community to, on the basis of the results of the Commission’s research, conduct their own objective and professional researches, all with the aim of discovering accurate facts about these tragic events that should contribute to better mutual understanding and trust and ultimately to future reconciliation.

Recommendations

The Commission hopes that after this Report, concrete steps will be taken towards facing the past of all, both the parties that were in conflict and the representatives of the international community, international organizations, and associations of war victims. One such step could be to pay tribute to the victims of all parties at the sites of their suffering by representatives of all the above parties. True and non-discriminatory respect for all innocent victims by the joint delegations of the above parties is a step that can contribute to a common confrontation with the past and a better understanding of the universal truth about the dignity and value of every human life.
