Commemorating the Bosnian Genocide through Inter-Faith Dialogue
Thursday 12 November 18.00 – 23.59 Wednesday 2 December
In honour of Inter-faith week, Remembering Srebrenica is hosting a webinar on the importance of faith and inter-faith events and activities.
It has been 25 years since the genocide against Bosnian-Muslims was enacted by Serb forces and 75 years since the genocide against Jewish Europeans enacted by Nazi Germany. Despite the fact that Europe is home to two of the worst genocides in modern history, the targeting of religious minorities and ethnic identities continues to grow, both in the United Kingdom and abroad. Inter-faith dialogues, events, and relations provide us with a powerful tool to counter the hatred that causes discrimination and marginalisation of religious minorities. It allows us to deepen our understanding, cooperation, and raise awareness to ensure that we are promoting strong and united communities. Inter-faith events serve as a formidable vehicle to commemorate the genocide in Bosnia and ensure that the lessons of the past are learned by diverse groups of people.
Please join us as we discuss the importance of inter-faith events in commemorating the genocide in Bosnia, the impact of inter-faith events on cohesion building and genocide awareness, as well as how and what you can do to contribute to inter-faith events. Our panel of inter-faith event organisers will educate on the most effective way to host an inter-faith event, community organising, and how they've learned through their work to bring communities together to remember the genocide in Bosnia and stand up to hatred.
This webinar allows for the opportunity to educate yourself and others on how inter-faith events function and the important role they play in forging safer communities free of hatred. The webinar will end with a Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
