  • The designation of the Srebrenica as being from “Serbia” are inaccurate, ironically so from a historical and ethnic standpoint. Srebrenica is part of the nation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, as it was before the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s. The 1995 Dayton Agreement placed Srebrenica in the Republika Srpska (“Serb Republic”) portion of B-H. In other words, it is in the mainly Serb portion of the country. However, the country most often called “Serbia” on the international stage is the much larger Republic of Serbia to the north and east.
