Aida is a translator for the UN in the small town of Srebrenica. When the Bosnian Serb army takes over the town, her family is among the thousands of citizens looking for shelter in the UN camp. As an insider to the negotiations, Aida has access to crucial information that she needs to interpret. What is at the horizon for her family and people - rescue or death? Which move should she take?

The Srebrenica massacre was the biggest human genocide in Europe since WW2 – some 3,000 bodies are still not found.

Introduced live by Julia Berg, a journalist who specialises in the former Yugoslavia and has visited Srebrenica many times, including as guest speaker on specialist tours together with TV journalists Martin Bell OBE and Paul Davies OBE, who reported extensively at the time. Julia has interviewed many of the survivors and the relatives of those whose loved ones still have not been found.

'After 25 years, the time has come to look again at the horror of Srebrenica, and Zbanic has done this with clear-eyed compassion and candour' - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
