Painful memories of the massacre committed by Serbians against Bosnians are still fresh and there have been efforts to remember the people killed by Serbians.
A photograph exhibition which is held by the Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TIKA) in Sarajevo is one of those efforts to pass the pains of the massacre to next generations and have them not forget it.
Efforts began when First President of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Alija Izzetbegovic, said "You were persecuted however you are free to forgive your persecutors. What ever you do, do not forget the massacre because if you do, it will repeat one day again."
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan extended great support to the opening of the photo exhibition and Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag attended the opening on July 12.
The photos displayed at the exhibition are generated by the Bosnian photographer Tarik Samarah.
The exhibition is also covering the stories of lamented people in capital Sarajevo alongside hundreds of photos taken during the war and during the opening of the mass graves.
Owner of the striking photos, Tarik Samarah, told AA that he took pictures of the victims' families who were digging the graveyards of their close ones before the first mass burial ceremony in the Potocari Memorial Cemetery.
Samarah also added that photos were placed in chronical order.
He highlighted that the photos of victims' being taken out from their graves, their personal belongings and bones represent the pain and the terror during the genocide.
More than 8,000 Bosnian people were killed in and around the town of Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina in July 1995 by units of Serbian army during the Bosnian War. The bones of Srebrenica massacre's victims are still being brought out of mass graveyards and works to identify the victims continue.
At the remembrance gallery, photos cover the dead victims, families of victims and what they went through, belongings of victims and remains from the genocide. Moreover, visitors of the exhibition watch videos which were recorded at those times in Srebrenica at the gallery area.
In 2015 Luca Locatelli, a documentary photographer, received permission to visit Mecca and Medina. He documented his trip in a virtual reality video for The New York Times.
