  • Shame of Srebrenica

    CBS News reports about "the single worst war crime of the Bosnia war: the Serb massacre of approximately 8 thousand Muslims after the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995.

  • The Death of A Village

    Newsweek takes an in-depth look at what happened in one village in the Srebrenica enclave after Serbs overran the area in 1995. By tracing every family and household and what befell them, Newsweek found a compelling way to determine the grander scale of the massacres in Srebrenica.

The CSM visited four of the six suspected mass graves around the fallen UN safe area of Srebrenica, found nine credible survivors of the mass executions, and exposed those responsible for the tragedy and the Clinton administration's inconsistent record on the issue.
