In my mother´s house. My aunt is the only survivor of the family of my father. Because my sister is living in my mother´s house again, I have somebody where I can go to when I am in Srebrenica.

Of my big family only very few are still alive. One of my brother who is still together with me.

At the memorial in Potočari. At this moment my heart feels heavy, because my husband and my son are not here. Flowers instead of (the grave) a child.

My younger son Elvir and I have survived. I worry about his future. He often wakes at night from nightmares. Elvir and I stick close together.

My house used to be a happy one, but now it seems so sad to me without my family. (At the time the photo was taken Almasa was not even allowed to enter the garden. There were refugees living there. Since the spring of 2001 it has become her house again).

My neighbour is the first and – as yet, 2001, the only – person to return to Srebrenica. (He has died by now.)

The Moslem men of Srebrenica that fled to the UN camp were brought by Bosnian Serb soldiers into this separate house on the site. My husband and my elder son were among those that disappeared there.

My brother-in-law is visiting. I am delighted to have him here with me. He is the only survivor in my family.
