The photo exhibit "Srebrenica, remembrance for the future," is on display in the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington on June 16, 2005. The exhibit commemorates the 10th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Announcer: The 50 year anniversary of D-Day reminded Europeans of how far they had come and should have renewed respect for the western alliance. But NATO hurt itself in 1994 by failing to stop the genocidal conflict in Bosnia.

Unknown Speaker: "In south-west Sarajevo an armored car carrying members of BBC News, United Press International were targeted by Bosnian Serb artillery."

Announcer: Our correspondent was unhurt. A lot of Bosnians weren’t so lucky.

Margaret Thatcher: "Two hundred thousand deaths, 2 million ethnic cleansing and west says soft words and empty threats."

Announcer: Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher summed up the year in Bosnia as a dangerous message.

Margaret Thatcher: "It will not do. All it does is encourage an aggressor. Everyone can watch now and say, the Serbs have got away with aggression."
