This weekend marks the 20th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre. 8,372 Muslim men and boys were murdered by Serbian forces, the worst atrocity on European soil since World War II. Part of the commemorations is a display of 100,000 fake bones, one for each person killed during the Bosnian War. The installation has been put together by a group of young Bosnians from all ethnic origins. They're determined to remain positive in a country still heavily burdened by the scars of war.
