On 10.09.2010, the second day of Eid,more than a hundred volunteers from Sarajevo made their way to Perucac lake where hundreds of remains of Bosniak victims from Visegrad lay. They were murdered by Bosnian Serb forces in 1992 and their bodies dumped into the River Drina. The following pictures were taken by Velija Hasanbegovic, a Visegrad genocide survivor and one of the organizers of  the exhumations.
