"Timeline: Siege of Srebrenica." BBC News. BBC, 06 Sept. 2005. W Bosnia is facing poverty but there poverty level is slowly decreasing Most Bosnians that relocated went to America after the war/genocide Bosnia has rebuilt most of the there major cities after the war destroyed many of them The population in 1991 (a year before the genocide) was about 532,000 people
The population in 1995 was about 221,000 people I learned that people should not be judged, injured, or executed based on their personal beliefs
People should not receive false punishment for their beliefs
