MO: A TRIBUTE TO MASSACRE VICTIMS

ST. LOUIS – Senahid, 17, student.

Saban, 48, father of six children.

Nino, 20, a journalist.

These are just three of the 20 Bosnian genocide victims whose names were woven into a quilt unveiled Sunday in St. Louis – because it is here where their loss is understood best.

The memorial quilt was woven in Bosnia-Herzegovina to commemorate the 1995 genocide in Srebrenica. The weavers chose St. Louis not only because it has the largest number of Bosnian refugees in the country, but also because it has the largest number of survivors of the Srebrenica massacre.
