Bringing life back to Srebrenica

Monday, 04 July, 2005: Abel Hertzberger
Abel Hertzberger, of Werkgroep Nederland Srebrenica, who is involved in the Civil Presence Project, under which international volunteers offer practical and moral support to returnees to Srebrenica, gave a fascinating insight into the practical difficulties faced by Bosniak returnees to Srebrenica, and into the strategies adopted by his volunteer organization for improving the quality of life in the town through practical measures - e.g. in the sphere of reconstruction, income generation, health and social care, cultural activities for children - that can benefit all its inhabitants, thus fostering interaction between returning Bosniaks and ‘Serbs of good will’, themselves often refugees from elsewhere.
