This book analyzes the reporting of the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995 by the newspapers in Sarajevo and Belgrade: Oslobo?enje and Politika respectively. It focuses on the differences and potential similarities in the discourses and editorial policies those two newspapers employed while reporting this human tragedy. The fall of Srebrenica was a horrific episode in what was a bloody war in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which began in spring 1992. The war lasted for three and a half years and it claimed over 250,000 lives and forced almost two million people into refuge. Some 8,100 people were estimated as missing following the fall of Srebrenica in July 1995; 6,435 were confirmed killed by 27 April 2010. It is important to note that discussions about the gravity of what happened in Srebrenica are still ongoing and that the focus is still on judicial and political processes while little to no attention has been paid to how media reported the event itself. This book will therefore help to increase the understanding of how media of the two warring sides, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Serbia, functioned in that period and how they reported the war and the fall of Srebrenica itself.
