…because it matters to me! | …jer me se tiče! About White Armband Day: May 31st is the remembrance day of all the victims of genocide in Prijedor, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In May 1992, armed Serbian forces released a command for all NON-Serbians to mark their households by hanging a white cloth from their windows as well as to wear a white armband if they were to leave their houses. This marked the beginning of concentration camps, mass rapes and murders, which resulted in genocide and ethnic cleansing against more than 95% of Bosnian Muslims (Bosniaks) and Bosnian Croats from Prijedor and surrounding areas. During the Holocaust in 1939, Nazis forced the Jews to wear white armbands with a blue Star of David. The white armband decree in Prijedor was the first such command after the Holocaust.
