Over the course of a mid-Summer week in July 1995, more than 8,000 men and boys were systematically killed in a small Bosnian town called Srebrenica. 'Untold Killing' tells the little-known story of genocide and ethnic cleansing right in the heart of Europe through the voices of those who survived it. It’s a tale of betrayal, injustice, and what the world’s wilful ignorance towards ethnic persecution leads to.A co-production from Message Heard and Remembering Srebrenica. Hosted by Aleksandra Bilić. ‘Untold Killing’ marks the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide.
The story of the last European genocide starts with the Bosnian War in 1992. Tens of thousands of Bosnian Muslims fleeing from persecution found their way to Srebrenica, a town where they were meant to be protected. And before genocide was carried out in that very town in 1995, the Muslims survived a siege that lasted for years.For more information and resources visit: https://www.srebrenica.org.uk/podcast/

An important piece of history to be heard
As someone who knew of the Bosnian war in the 90s but very little about the detail of it, this podcast really grips you and teaches you about an important piece of modern history that has shaped the lives of so many people today.
Told with a range of people’s stories from the time, I found it a good mix of educational and personal which leaves you invested in these people and wanting to find out more.
It is the duty of everyone to hear the testimony of a survivor of genocide during their life. The incredible courage, the warmth, the suffering of survivors, is all captured in episode 1, which tells the story of how Srebrenica came under siege in 1993 under the protection of the UN forces. The host of the podcast’s voice is incredible, moving us through her personal connection to Bosnia into the tragic events of Srebrenica. This is backed by beautiful music and sound design. An incredible historical podcast that I have been honored to be a part of.
Already gripped! Amazing
