University of Denver

The world is full of many amazing individuals who have seen, heard, and felt loss, tragedy, and oppression. Many things in this world we wish would never continue and we hope don’t happen again, one of these is genocide.

The Graduate School of Social Work was honored to open the University of Denver’s Sesquicentennial (150th) Anniversary celebration lecture series with our guest Hasan Hasanović on Wednesday, January 29. Hasan is currently the Curator and Interpreter of Bosnia’s Srebrenica-Potočari Cemetery and Memorial Centre. As a survivor of the Srebrenica Genocide he provides the global community with one of many faces of courage, and strength.

His lecture entitled “Surviving the Srebrenica Genocide” brought a first hand account of the genocide in Srebrenica. His story brings the impact this genocide has had on Bosnia, his family, and the global community.

One of Hasan’s opening slides is the Flower of Srebrenica.

Hasan’s lecture brings forward a piece of world history that not many are aware of. His first hand account, and survival demonstrates the strength that individuals’ can carry. Getting the chance to hear him speak and meet him in person is extremely special and something I will never forget. ~Nick Ota-Wang, Admission Assistant, Graduate School of Social Work, University of Denver
