الجريمة والعقاب
Apr 27 - May 14, 2006 @ The Hangar - Beirut


In July 1995, over 7,000 Muslim men were massacred in Srebrenica during a genocide that represented the bloodiest period of the Yugoslav Wars. To commemorate this atrocity ten years later, the Heinrich Böll Foundation initiated a remembrance project that included a 33-photo exhibition featuring five Bosnian and five international photographers. The exhibition toured internationally and was brought to Beirut in partnership with UMAM D&R.

With its focus on the past and the need to confront unsettling memories as a way of moving forward, UMAM D&R saw parallels between the mass graves in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the discovery of new mass graves from Lebanon's civil war. In addition to hosting the photo exhibition at the Hangar, UMAM D&R held a roundtable discussion on April 29, 2006, to foster a dialogue between local actors and those with experience in Yugoslavia. Drawing upon their unique backgrounds, the attendees touched on topics of genocide, crimes against humanity, and justice.
