Genocide on the Drina River

This chapter presents the case studies of seven Eastern Bosnian municipalities where genocide was implemented against Muslims by Bosnian Serb and Serbian forces during the 1992-1995 war, and which together illustrate a pattern of Serb genocidal designs against Bosnian Muslims as a whole. The towns of Zvornik, Vlasenica, Bratunac, Rogatica, Foča, Višegrad, and Srebrenica are examined through the lens of microanalysis to extract the particular features that marked this model of genocide, compared to other historical examples. A particular focus of the chapter is on Srebrenica and the “slow motion genocide” that was at work there long before the 1995 mass murder of 8,000 men and boys that has become the singularly well-known event of the war to those outside the region. This chapter offers an alternative view to the notion that those infamous events in Srebrenica are the only instance of genocide that occurred during the war.

Keywords:   Eastern Bosnia, Zvornik, Vlasenica, Bratunac, Rogatica, Foča, Višegrad, Srebrenica
