Transcript of Bosnian Genocide Prezi

The Bosnian Genocide By: Ryan McKnight Bosnian Genocide Overview In April 1992, the government of the Yugoslav republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina declared its independence from Yugoslavia. Over the next couple of years, Bosnian Serb forces with the assistance of the Yugoslav army targeted Bosnian and Croatian civilians for somewhat atrocious crimes. This resulted in the death of nearly 2,000,000 Bosnian people by 1995. It was one of the worse genocides ever since the Nazi's extermination of the Jews during WWII. Bosnian Genocide Facts Over 2 million Bosnian people were killed through a series of massacres Victims The victims in the Bosnian Genocide are all of the Bosnian men and women, Croatians, and Muslims. After Bosnia split apart from Yugoslavia, the Yugoslavian army killed a massive amount of people, a majority of them being Bosnians. The Bosnian men and women were the victims of this genocide because they were innocent, helpless, and had nothing they could do to prevent the Yugoslavians from attacking them. Perpetrators The perpetrators in the Bosnian Genocide were the Yugoslavian army and Serb forces. Together, they killed more then 2,000,000 innocent Bosnian civilians. These people were the perpetrators because their forces were aimed specifically at Bosnians and non-Serb civilians. So they used their combined power to murder defenseless people and they drove the rest from their homes and businesses, which were then looted and destroyed. Period 1 Ms. Wheeler Women were either assaulted or put to hard labor Bosnian women as young as 5 and 6 years old were raped Men and boys were either instantly killed or bussed to mass killing sites The Bosnian Genocide started in April 1992 and ended in the summer of 1995 Thousands of people were buried in mass graves Between 200,000 and 400,000 people had died at the end of 1992 20,000-60,000 Bosnian Muslim women had been raped by Bosnian Serb soldiers Bystanders The bystanders of the Bosnian Genocide were The United States, Muslim Saltans, Sarajevo (Bosnia), and the United Nations. A bystander to me is a country who has the ability to help out another country in need, yet they choose not to. All of these countries knew that there was a genocide happening in Bosnia because there were proofs of concentration camps, but they didn't do anything to assist Bosnia. Even Countries in the Middle East did something to help Bosnia, but countries like the United States and the United Nations who had all of the power and military still did nothing to help out. They just stood on the sidelines as they watched a friendly country go up in flames. Due to the lack of assistance from other countries, Bosnia suffered a total death toll of 2.7 million people. Resistors The serbs knew that the United Nations wouldn't do anything to help the genocide taking place. Due to this the serbs continued to commit genocide. Later the United Nations made a plea to U.S. president Bill Clinton for military intervention after a mortar shell struck in Sarajevo. Clinton replied to this by telling the serbs to remove their artillery from Sarajevo. The serbs did not listen and they resisted against Clinton.
