Summary/Abstract: After a quarter of a century, the past 25 years since the genocide of Srebrenica Bosniaks will be analyzed in this text through three aspects of observing Bosnian society, the state and its citizens, and especially like-minded people - who should continuously consider how to permanently heal the open wounds of postgenocidal the state of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The first aspect concerns the evident division in the international community - the so-called of the civilized world to those who condemn genocide and the so-called an insidious world that denies it even after the final judgments of the International Court of Justice in The Hague; the second aspect is the division within Bosniaks into those who, as survivors of genocide, suffer the terror of the usurpation of basic human rights and those non-Bosniaks for whom every remembrance of war suffering is a terror of remembrance. Finally, the third division arises on the ideas and practices of how to proceed in the entity of Republic of Srpska and Srebrenica and Bosnia and those who ruthlessly flee from any such thought. All three circles, all three envelopes are especially important how to place them in the educational system, in home education, in personal understanding and socialization. There is no doubt that all citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and intellectuals in particular, are responsible and that some jobs are well done. But the year 2020 just showed how irresponsible and lost it is in this group of people.
