GENOCIDE IN THE BALKANS: GENOCIDE IN THE BALKANS By Jack K. , Henry, and Jake L. What is Genocide?: What is Genocide? Genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, esp. those of a particular ethnic group or nation. War in Bosnia: War in Bosnia After the breakup of Bosnia, and Serbia from Yugoslavia, a country that controlled most of the territory in the Balkan Peninsula and Macedonia, several conflicts began to spring up in Serbia and Bosnia, two of the countries that had recently gained independence. Bosnia, was now controlled almost 55% by Bosniaks; many of them being Muslim, who were heavily persecuted by most other ethnicities in the Balkans. With Bosnia now controlled by a primarily native Bosnian government, they were opposed by the Serbian and Yugoslavian governments causing the invasion of Bosnia. Serbia also believed that Bosnia and Herzegovina illegally declared their independence from Yugoslavia, that was another one of the reasons for war. Killing and round-up of Muslim, and other ethnicities: Killing and round-up of Muslim, and other ethnicities As Serbian forces invaded Bosnia, they began to attack and round-up various ethnicities, primarily Bosnian Muslims.

Muslim people were placed into concentration camps and starved to death in a Holocaust like scenario. Serbian forces surrounded and besieged the city of Sarajevo, turning the once Olympic village and current capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina into a third-world like city filled with death and fear. The Main Street road in Sarajevo became known as "Sniper Alley" when Serb snipers began firing on any civilian that walked through the street. Serbian leadership: Serbian leadership Slobadan Milošević was the first president of Serbia, and the president during the Bosnian War. Slobadan supported all paramilitary and Serbian forces during the conflict, and even controlled much of their movements. Aftermath and Dayton Agreement: Aftermath and Dayton Agreement The war caused massive devastation within Bosnia and Serbia, and was the largest mass genocide in Europe since the Holocaust. The Dayton Agreement was a document signed by the two major parties in the Bosnian War (Bosnia, Yugoslavia and Serbia) and several other nations (France, United Kingdom, Germany, Russia and the European Union) aiming to end the conflict in Bosnia. The Dayton Agreement also created formal and official borders and boundaries in the Balkans. It created regional balance between the Citations: Citations
