Azema Đozić

Before the war, Azema Đozić (b. 1965) lived with her husband, Mustafa, and three children in Potočari. As she says, “everything was perfect, and we enjoyed our life.”

Azema’s husband Mustafa (b. 1964) and brother-in-law Mensur (b. 1966) were killed in the Genocide. In July 1995, Mustafa, together with his brothers and other men, headed for Šušnjari because they knew that if they stayed at the United Nations base they would be killed.

“We said our goodbyes with the promise that we would meet in free territory in a few days.”

She donated Mustafa’s photograph to the Srebrenica Memorial Center archives for permanent retention.

Azemina’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.
