Ajiša Džananović

Ajiša Džananović (b. 1950) was born in the village of Voljavica, in the municipality of Bratunac. She holds in her hands a health booklet and workbook belonging to her son, Halid (b. 1971), who was killed in the genocide in Srebrenica in 1995. Ajiša, together with a wallet, donated these items to the archives of the Srebrenica Memorial Center for permanent retention.

“I am happy that there is a place where the things of our loved ones will be kept. Who else will take care of them when we are gone?”

Ajiša’s husband Šahin (1949) was killed in 1992.

Ajiša’s testimony was documented within the multimedia project, “Memento: Fragments of the Srebrenica Genocide,” which is produced by the Srebrenica Memorial Center and the Post-Conflict Research Center.
