Srebrenica Genocide Memorial

Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The Srebrenica Genocide Memorial was built to commemorate the Srebrenica massacre, committed in July 1995 by Serbs against Bosniak Muslims during the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The site today is basically a cemetery, where some 6000 victims of the atrocities are buried, and continue to be buried once identified which is an ongoing process. In addition there is a kind of museum in the nearby former car battery factory, where many of the victims had tried to seek refuge. Srebrenica stands for the worst genocidal atrocities committed in Europe since the Holocaust.

Goryokaku Fortress

Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.

The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.

Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
