Resolution 819

Resolution 819 is the first movie about the massacre in Srebrenica. I have not seen it yet but from what I have heard it seems to me that it offers a reliable account of the events that unfolded after the Bosnian Serb army had overrun the city. The movies such as this one help preserve the memory of the unfathomable atrocities committed by the Bosnian Serb army. Ratko Mladic, who personally supervised the operation that ultimately enabled the Bosnian Serb army to capture the town is still at large and many of the soldiers who participated in the attack on Srebrenica can be seen on the streets of Srebrenica every day. 14 years have passed since the abhorrent massacre but only a few have been held to account. This is why Resolution 819 is so important; it keeps the memory alive. For more information about this movie see
