Bahrudin Salihović

Before the war, Bahrudin Salihović (1970) and his family lived in Voljevica, in the Municipality of Bratunac. They left their town in May 1992 after the surrounding villages were set on fire.

He spent nine days on the Death March route. To survive, Bahrudin had to hide among the dead bodies.

“I would make sure to cover myself up with two dead bodies and smear myself with their blood. I was ready to do anything so that I would not be spotted alive.”

Bahrudin managed to reach the free territory, but six of his family members were not so lucky.

Bahrudin’s testimony is 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.
