In April 1993, in the midst of the Bosnian war, the United Nations declared the besieged Muslim part of Srebrenica a safe zone. Dutch soldiers, also known as the Dutchbat, were sent to ensure peace and four hundred soldiers sojourned in an accumulator factory.
In July 1995, after the fall of the safe zone, the Dutch forces retreated and moved to Tuzla. In the days that followed 8,000 Muslim men and boys were executed by Bosnian Serb forces.
Almost 27 years after the worst European genocide since World War II, the Dutch graffiti in Srebrenica still serve as a reminder of a shameful Dutch incompetence and a sickening arrogance they had towards their UN mission and people they ought to protect.
Oblivious to the fact that a horrible genocide was just about to happen before their eyes, the Dutch troops stationed at the UN base in Potocari spent their time “decorating” walls with drawings and graffiti. Some of these disgusting Dutch graffiti are XXX-rated.
