Hasan Nuhanović worked as a translator/interpreter with the Dutchbat III contingent of the United Nations Protection Force which was assigned the task of protecting the UN “safe area” of Srebrenica during the Bosnian war. After Srebrenica fell to the Bosnian Serb Army, Nuhanović’s family found shelter at the Potočari UN base but was soon forced to leave, ultimately falling victim to the Srebrenica genocide. Since the end of the Bosnian war, Nuhanović has campaigned to publicize the truth about genocide. He has provided evidence at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and has helped establish the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial at Potočari. He works closely with other survivors, including the Mothers of Srebrenica in Sarajevo and the Women of Srebrenica in Tuzla. Nuhanović authored “Under the UN Flag,” a chronology of events at Srebrenica and examination of the responsibility and guilt of members of the international community who failed to fulfill their commitment to the “safe area” of Srebrenica.
