Artist installs 8,000 coffee cups to mark 25th anniversary of Bosnian Muslims massacre

More than 8,000 traditional Bosnian coffee cups were installed as a memorial in the town of Srebrenica on Friday to mark the 25th anniversary of the massacre of Muslim men and boys by Serb forces near the end of Bosnia’s war.

The porcelain cups are part of a “Where Have You Been” exhibit that a Bosnian-born American artist created in 2006 and displayed in different countries every year before bringing them back to the site of Europe’s worst atrocity since World War Two.
