OTTAWA, June 23 (FENA) - The mayor of the Canadian capital, Ottawa, declared July 11 this year as the Day of Remembrance for the victims of the genocide in Srebrenica. This is the first time that the capital of Canada honors the victims of the biggest crime after the Holocaust in Europe.

The proclamation is of great significance for the culture of memory because many deniers of judicial, historical and scientific facts about the genocide in Srebrenica live in the capital of Canada and failed in their campaign against this proclamation.

This proclamation is another call to the Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Canada, Marko Milisav, who so far has not respected the decisions of the Parliament of Canada on the genocide in Srebrenica or the decisions of the authorities of Bosnia and Herzegovina to lower the flag of Bosnia and Herzegovina to half-mast at the Embassy of Bosnia and Herzegovina on July 11.

So far, on the occasion of the 28th anniversary of the genocide in Srebrenica, we have received proclamations from the prime minister of the Canadian province of New Brunswick and the mayor of the largest Canadian city, Toronto. We expect that the prime ministers of other Canadian provinces and territories and major Canadian cities will proclaim the Day of Remembrance by July 11. 

The central Canadian commemoration will be held on July 8 in Windsor in front of the first monument to the victims of the genocide in Srebrenica in the diaspora, the Institute for the Research of Genocide Canada (IGC) announced.
