Zejneba Mešić

Zejneba Mešić (b. 1962) fled to Bratunac at the beginning of the war in 1992, together with her mother and brother, hoping to be safer there.

Until then, she lived in the village of Budak with her husband Salem (b. 1954), whose body was found in 2002 in the mass grave of Lazeta, near Zvornik.

Zejneba donated her husband’s watch to the Srebrenica Memorial Center for permanent retention because, as she says,

“he is no longer here, but at least his belongings remain to tell his story.”

Zejneba’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.
