Ramiza Bešić

Until the beginning of the war, Ramiza Bešić (1970) lived with her family in Bratunac. In 1992, they fled to Kladanj.
Although she was in Kladanj during the war, she feared for the lives of her father and sister every day. Her father Ramiz Alić (1942) was killed in the Srebrenica Genocide.

The only remaining copy of a photograph of her father’s clothes, which she received during the identification process by the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP), Ramiza gave to the archive of the Srebrenica Memorial Center for permanent retention.

“I want to hand this over to the Museum so that it can be displayed, so nobody forgets what happened and so that the truth can be seen. That’s all I have.”

Ramiza’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.
