CALL TO ACTION: Protest Letter to Simon Wiesenthal Centre regarding Effraim Zuroff denying the genocide in Srebrenica and Bosnia-Herzegovina

On behalf of Bosniaks in the U.S. and Canada and survivors of the Bosnian genocide, we call to action all friends and people of good will to protest the comments made by Effraim Zuroff in which he is denying the genocide in Srebrenica and Bosnia-Herzegovina. It is incomprehensible that someone who works for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, an international organization whose mission includes remembrance of the lessons of the Holocaust, would allow themselves to be used by the Serb nationalists to openly deny genocide against Bosniaks during the war from 1992-1995. Please see below a sample letter that you can send to the Simon Wiesenthal Center so please join us in voicing your opinion to the Center at:  http://instituteforgenocide.org/?p=7028

On behalf of Bosniaks in the U.S. and Canada and survivors of the Bosnian genocide, we protest the comments made by one of your activists Effraim Zuroff denying the genocide in Srebrenica and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

It is incomprehensible that someone who works for such an important international organization whose mission includes remembrance of the lessons of the Holocaust, would allow themselves to be used by the Serb nationalists to openly deny genocide against Bosniaks during the war from 1992-1995.

We respectfully demand that your institute apologizes for the hurtful comments reportedly made by your activist Effraim Zuroff, and thus distance yourself from extreme Serbian nationalists who are now perpetuating revisionist history based on genocide denial. If these reports are somehow incorrect, then we ask for a public explanation from Mr. Zuroff and the Simon Wiesenthal center. We hope that you will take this matter very seriously as we believe the members of your institute understand the ultimate ramifications of holocaust and genocide denial.
