“When word got out that Srebrenica had fallen, I was the only photographer who recorded the arrival of exhausted and wounded people. I could not believe that they actually managed to reach freedom. However, in whatever state they were, they survived, as opposed to the thousands of people who were killed. When I returned to Tuzla, numerous journalists gathered around me and asked me to give them some photos, which went throughout the world. Ever since then, I have followed all the events of the Srebrenica,” said Bajric.
