Hasima Spiodic, who was only 22 years old when she was killed, is one of the 14 found and buried women who were killed during the genocide in Srebrenica in July 1995.

Hasib Spiodic says that he remembers his sister Hasima every day and that he is still fighting with trauma of her death.

“My sister was just a year older than me. I am thinking about her every day, I would not wish that to happen to anyone else. All those losses, traumas, everything that left consequences on my whole life”, said Spiodic.

He could not persuade his sister to go with other women and children with a convoy from Potocari on July 11, 1995, after Serbian forces attacked the then protected enclave, but she went with him and her husband through the forest with the aim to get to Tuzla.

“We were occasionally separated in that mass of people, but I was searching for them and I found them. That night, from July 12 to 13, they were killed above Konjevic-Polje at the place where we separated. They were found in the territory of Krajinovici above Kravica,” said Spiodic.

Lejla Cengic, the spokeswoman of the Missing Person Institute of BiH, stated that so far, the youngest and the eldest victim that were buried in Potocari were females.

“Baby Muhic, born on July 13, 1995, is the youngest victim, while Saha Izmirlic, born in 1901, is the eldest victim of Srebrenica genocide. They were exhumed from the mass grave that was found back in 2012 in the area of Accumulator factory in Potocari, from which were exhumed five victims,” said Cengic.

Besides Hasima, baby Muhic and Saha Izmirlic, 11 other women who were killed during the Srebrenica genocide in July 1995 were buried in Memorial Center Potocari.
