Srebrenica Memorial Day
The 11th of July marks the 27th anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide, where more than 8,000 Bosniak-Muslims were killed in horrific acts of violence.
The genocides, mass rapes, and mass killings of Bosniak-Muslims occurred just 50-years after the world witnessed the atrocities of the holocaust and said ‘Never Again’. But as humans we forget, and as Muslims we see too often how Islamophobia and violence against our communities continues. Therefore, it is important that we remember this history, and educate ourselves and others on our Muslim European history.
The theme for this year’s anniversary is ‘Together We Are One’. As Muslims, we often quote the Hadeeth from our Beloved prophet SAW:
“The parable of the believers in their affection, mercy, and compassion for each other is that of one body. When any limb aches, the whole body reacts with sleeplessness and fever.”
And yet, few of us know, remember or reflect on our Muslim brothers and sisters in Europe recovering from and facing violence due to Islamophobia. The 4th – 11th July marks the Memorial week for the Bosnian Genocide and so events are running this week across the UK in remembrance of those that were killed, those whose bodies are still missing and the survivors that live on.

Dear Parents and Supporters,
Many students draw from our hardship fund to afford tickets and transport to Campus events. Here they get a chance to learn from scholars, specialists and activists in a warm and friendly environment; making good friends along the way!
Campus keeps ticket costs low, always making an organisational loss, in order to maximise attendance at this critical stage in young people’s lives; where many find holding on to faith tricky.
Would you kindly consider purchasing tickets that will contribute to students in financial distress, converts and our Campus hardship fund?
It would make a real difference for many young people to experience an Islamic environment that is balanced, sincere and nurturing.
May Allah reward you all.
