Srebrenica - A Cry From the Grave

A few books have since been written saying that the number of Bosnian Muslim civilians killed were exaggerated and may have been 800 instead of 8, 000. While authors like this can be dismissed as promoting some kind of propaganda to deflect blame from the Dutch peacekeepers of the UN, the studies were written by other witnesses as well as relief personnel who worked with the UN who made their testimonies public only after assurances they themselves would not be targeted for saying something outside of the official figures cited. The authors have further said most of those killed were not civilians but fighters who were killed in battle but quickly buried to make the Serbs appear to be war criminals and scapegoats for genocide in place of being portrayed as the legitimate victor after a military confrontation.
