Memorial Quilt 1: The Weavers' Quilt

The first Srebrenica Memorial Quilt commemorates 20 victims of the Srebrenica genocide.  These individuals were the family members of the women of BOSFAM.

 

The first quilt contains no last names and the women of BOSFAM dedicate this quilt to all the victims who share the first names of their loved ones.  Subsequent quilts have the first and last names of the individuals being commemorated.  In cases where multiple individuals had the same first and last name, the initial of their father’s first name is also woven on the carpet.

 

 

Our desire is to return some form of each victim’s identity, thus creating a permanent memorial.  No mother gave birth to “Missing Person #XXXX.”  This is our way of commemorating the victims of the genocide and supporting those who knew and loved them.  We wish to thank everyone who has and continues to support this project.
