Rifet Malagić

Rifet Malagić (b. 1947) worked in a mine in the village of Voljavica. He lived there with his family before the war.

The most difficult experiences from the Death March, on which he spent six days with his young son, Adis, were the attacks with chemical weapons.

“I pulled myself together a little when it started to rain and hail. The chemical weapons attacks were terrible.”

After making their way to the free territory of Nezuk, Rifet and Adis went to Banovići and lived there as refugees until the day they returned to their homes in 2002.

The remains of two members of his family were found, although nine of them were killed in the Genocide.

Rifet’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.
