Sir David Amess Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2023)

Bob Stewart: ..., and their loss still haunts me as I was responsible for them, or responsible for where they were. The war, which started in 1991, shortly before I was first there, continued until the massacre of Srebrenica in July 1995 and ended with the Dayton peace accords in 1996. That stopped the fighting and established a triumvirate of uneasy power sharing between the three major sides: Bosnian...

Prime Minister: Engagements (12 Jul 2023)

Bob Stewart: May I remind the Deputy Prime Minister and the House that yesterday was National Remembering Srebrenica Day? May I particularly point out a little-known fact?

Holocaust Memorial Bill (28 Jun 2023)

Peter Bottomley: Christian—but I am proud to be associated with what they went through, which I know is possibly still happening now around the world, whether that is in Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, Cambodia or Srebrenica.

Does the...

Holocaust Memorial Day (26 Jan 2023)

John Howell: for Republika Srpska.” I ask you. Members can judge for themselves what that concerned. We are dealing with some very unpleasant people.

International Holocaust Memorial Day - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2023)

Lord Shinkwin: Hugo Gryn himself concedes, even until 1943, he and his family, living in the comparative safety of what was then Hungary, were unsuspecting. Now, 80 years later and with the horrors of Pol Pot, Srebrenica, and Xinjiang among others to remind us of how far and how fast we can fall as a species, we have no such excuse. I have heard it said that, “It is terribly sad what happened to the...

International Development Committee (19 Jan 2023)

Sarah Champion: certain parts of the world. The war in Ukraine reminds us that Europe is not immune to these horrors. Worrying tensions have returned to the western Balkans, despite the call to action that the Srebrenica genocide should have provided. Climate change, new technologies and dangers to democracy only threaten to worsen the atrocity risk that the world faces, so do not think such crimes...

Genocide Determination Bill [HL] - Second Reading (28 Oct 2022)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: Auschwitz-Birkenau and seen the chilling impact of the Holocaust’s aftermath, and it is important that we remain focused on that. Subsequently, like others, I visited and saw the horrors of Srebrenica.
