Nura Vranjkovina

Nura Vranjkovina’s (b. 1942) husband Mehmed (b. 1938) and brother-in-law Enver (b. 1949) were killed in the war.

“When I said goodbye to my husband, he told me, ‘Here’s my watch, give it to our child, so my grandchildren can have something that is mine.’ I told him, ‘Give it to them when you reach free territory,’ to which he replied, ‘I won’t.’ Along with the watch, he gave me a wedding ring.”

She donated her passport and a picture of her husband to the Srebrenica Memorial Center archives for permanent retention because it is important to her that the items be there, close to their graves.

Nura’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.
