Traces of GenocideFebruary 11, 2020
With 1,042 meters above sea level, Udrč mountain is the highest elevation point in central part of Podrinje region. In the summer of 1995, thousands have fled the Serbian onslaught by taking to the wooded slopes of this mountain, in order to reach Tuzla region, a territory controlled by the Army of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was a mountain of hope, that after all, they could survive the Srebrenica genocide.
Twenty-five years later, accompanied by a local guides Fahro Mustafić and ‘bone collector’ Ramiz Nukić, we climbed the top of the mountain. Where in the well-hidden valley in the middle of forest, we found a large number of items. Mostly the dishes used to prepare the food, but also wear parts of clothing and footwear.
