The Srebrenica massacre occurred in July 1995 during the last year of the war in Bosnia (1992––1995). It was the single worst atrocity during the war and in Europe since World War II. The Betrayal of Srebrenica: The Ten-Year Commemoration, with photographs by New York City human rights photographer Paula Allen, focuses on the July 11, 2005 commemoration of Srebrenica, which was attended by over 30,000 survivors and their supporters. The exhibit comprises photographs of Sarajevo, Srebrenica, the survivors, the activities of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP), and key aspects of the commemoration. The text panels accompanying the photographs feature quotes by survivors, journalists, United Nations officials, Bosnian Serb political officials and military commanders, and International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) judges. The article discusses how the author conceptualized and organized this exhibit as a public history project.
