The Cancari Road 13 mass grave is located in the village of Kamenica in eastern Bosnia and Herzegovina, near the city of Zvornik.
The road has become known as the Valley of Death, as along this route, 13 mass graves have been found by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, ICTY and the Bosnian Institute for Missing Persons.
This gravesite lies next to village houses and is marked with a memorial plaque.
The exhumation by the Bosnian Institute for Missing Persons in October 2002 revealed the remains of 61 people, who were all killed after the town of Srebrenica fell to the Bosnian Serb Army in July 1995.
The bodies were reburied at the Cancari Road 13 mass grave in the autumn of 1995 after being dug up in an attempt to cover up the killings. They had initially been buried near execution sites in Srebrenica, Pilica, Kozluk, Bratunac and Zvornik in the days after July 15, 1995. Two months later, Bosnian Serb forces were ordered to remove the bodies and rebury them in more remote and hard-to-find locations.
So far, the ICTY and domestic courts in the Balkans have sentenced a total of 47 people to more than 700 years in prison, plus five life sentences, for Srebrenica crimes and cover-up operations.
