The Srebrenica massacre in eastern Bosnia in July 1995 was one of the most horrific events of the violent break-up of the former Yugoslavia.

The massacre left more than 7000 Muslim men and boys dead, the largest mass murder in Europe since WWII.

To mark the 20th anniversary of the massacre, SBS is republishing "Echoes of Srebrenica", originally produced and broadcast by Kristina Kukokja in 2010.

"Echoes of Srebrenica" features the voices of survivors now living in Australia, some speaking for the first time about their experiences.

This special program also highlights the surprisingly prominent role of Australians in the continuing search for the missing, identification of the remains, and in bringing to justice some of those responsible for war crimes in Bosnia at the UN's International Criminal Tribunal.

It was produced by Kristina Kukolja, using music courtesy of the Damir Imamovic Trio.

SBS Radio's Kristina Kukolja won the 2010 Radio Feature, Documentary or Broadcast Special Walkley Award for her work on this radio feature.
