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 Takeover

    The Takeover

    Before thousands of non-Serbs ended up detained in concentration camps, their town and their local community became so divided that friends and neighbours came to stand on opposing sides of a brutal ethnic conflict.
