During the Balkan war, political bodies in the regions and internationally were indifferent to the fate of Bosnians in the Srebrenica region and elsewhere. Now, ten years after the massacre, the reconstruction of basic services has been so slow that many returnees are living in conditions belonging to a century ago. The responsibility for the regeneration of the region lies with the governments of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and the separatist government of Republic Srpska, as well as the European and international political community, says Croatian sociologist Novalic. Only when proper respects have been paid to the victims and their families, and when genuine regeneration has begun, can the youth begin to reflect on the deeds of the previous generation.
