Smajil Klempić

In this excerpt from his testimony, a Srebrenica genocide survivor Smajil Klempić recalls the ordeal of Bosnian Muslim men who left Srebrenica after its capture on July 11, 1995 and embarked on a long and dangerous journey through the surrounding woods to reach safety. In this segment, he describes this column being attacked by Bosnian Serb forces while resting at the edge of a forest to prepare to cross an open field. More than 10,000 Bosnian Muslim men embarked on this journey in 1995. Only around 3,000 of them reached safety, some as late as September 1995.
