Why Srebrenica Had to Fall

The interactive documentary Why Srebrenica Had To Fall is part of an ongoing investigation lasting 20 years, into the circumstances of the genocide in the Bosnian enclave of Srebrenica in 1995.

On July 11, 1995, the Bosnian Muslim enclave of Srebrenica was seized by the troops of General Ratko Mladić. Dutch UN troops stationed in the enclave (DutchBat) were unable to prevent this. In the days that followed more than 8,000 people were massacred.

Was there foreknowledge of the attack on Srebrenica? And why didn’t the international community protect the population?
