bosnia

  • Who is the genocide happening to? (What specific group of people?)    Bosniak
  • Who was killing this group of people? Why were they killing them? (what reasons were they being killed?)  Bosnian Serb. When Bosnia attempted to secede, Serbia – under Slobodan Miloševic’s leadership – invaded with the claim that it was there to “free” fellow Serbian Orthodox Christians living in Bosnia. so Starting in April 1992, Serbia set out to “ethnically cleanse” Bosnian territory.
  • What did the United Nations do to stop or prevent the genocide? Did any other organization or groups of people besides the UN try to help? had a resolution by the united nations general assembly and three convictions for genocide in German courts, (the convictions were based upon a wider interpretation of genocide than that used by international courts).In 2005, the United States Congress passed a resolution declaring that "the Serbian policies of aggression and ethnic cleansing meet the terms defining genocide".
  • What statement is this political cartoon making about the genocide? (What does the cartoon mean?)it shows that they were treated badly and the person says "ethnic cleansing they're playing my song" so it must think what their doing is good because thats what the person must want them to do even if they are suffering.
