Srebrenica was a UN “safe area” under the watch of a small number of Dutch troops before it was overrun. The Srebrenica massacre occurred in 1995 under the direction of General Mladic and General Radislav Krstic, whose successful prosecution for genocide is discussed in this chapter. Approximately seven thousand Bosnian Muslim men and boys were massacred in the Srebrenica massacre, the largest massacre in Europe since World War II. Without the persistence of the tribunal investigator Jean-René Ruez, the world might never have fully grasped the significance of this genocide. Shortly after the Srebrenica massacre, the Clinton administration gave support to NATO bombing of the Bosnian Serbs, which, combined with losses on the ground, forced the Serbs to finally go to the bargaining table at Dayton.
