Twenty-four years ago, radical Serb forces committed the worst genocide on European soil since the Holocaust.
In and around that hallowed ground at Srebrenica, over 8,000 Bosnians were murdered out of ethnic and religious hatred.
Iowa is now home to many Bosnians who bore witness to those atrocities.
I pray that they and their families find peace, and as well as justice.
Ethnic and religious hatred must never be tolerated and we must not forget the victims of this crime.
