Before the war, Rejha Ademović (b. 1951) lived in the village of Babuljica with her husband and children. With the fall of Srebrenica, her life took on a whole new meaning. Her husband Hakija (b. 1943) and sons Nezir (b. 1973) and Muamer (b. 1980) were killed in the Srebrenica Genocide.
She remembers vividly the last words she told her older son, whose remains were never found.
“Put your jacket on son, you’ll be cold.”
She donated shoes and a jacket to the archives of the Srebrenica Memorial Center for permanent retention and to honor her loved ones.
Rejha’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.
