On Sunday 24th July, you are welcome to join in the eye-opening event from 7pm at Longsight Business Park. The film, by Mohamed Kenawi, follows the women who survived the horror of the Srebrenica Massacre and faced the anguish of losing their loved ones.
The evening will allow you to gain an insight into the lives of the Bosnian women who wish for their painful stories to be shared. Wishing to make sense of the past amidst pain of loss and angst, the women aim to look to the future.
After the film, there will be a discussion about the issues raised in the film and how the UK can promote a cohesive community that learns from the past. There will also be light refreshments and food provided.

About Rethink Rebuild Society
Rethink Rebuild Society provide a voice for the Syrian community in Manchester. As a charity, they provide community help and support to improve the lives of Syrian people living here with refugee support, social gatherings, monthly seminars and an annual fun day.
The society goes to huge efforts to reduce the impact the crises has on children the conflict has affected. As many of them haven’t had any type of education for over three years, Rethink Rebuild collaborate with other charities and organisations to bring those children back to school. They establish community funds to improve education and fund schools in Syria itself, which accommodate thousands of children a year and help them develop morally, socially, educationally and spiritually.
They also promote Syrian issues within the UK through advocacy and policy locally and nationally, including addressing pertinent issues Syrians may face. They aim to cultivate relationships with the media to influence how Syria is discussed, and act as a critical source of information on behalf of Syrians; clarifying the situation with seminars, demonstrations and conferences.
