Description : Ten years after the Srebrenica massacre many families still wait for evidence of what exactly happened to their relatives. Throughout Bosnia-Herzegovina 14.500 persons were reported missing to the ICRC and 5.500 from Srebrenica alone.

He was just 18 when he, his father and an uncle fled to the hills near Srebrenica to try to escape death. They separated, believing this would increase their chances of survival. In the end, only he managed to get away. He has some of his father’s remains but wants to delay burial until he has more – a full skull, at least. Like many thousands of others, in all of Bosnia’s communities, Ramo may have a long wait ahead.
