Gallery 11/07/95 has a 10 km (5 euro) entrance fee. For 2 additional km (1 euro) you can have a guided tour, which is highly recommended. You will start your visit by watching a documentary (27 min) about the Srebrenica Genocide. After that, the guide will walk you through the photo exhibition and will give you all the necessary explanations or will answer all your questions. You can also watch a lot of footage about Srebrenica, as Gallery 11/07/95 is not only an exhibition, but also a documenting center. You can use your ticket in the next three days if you want to spend more time researching the genocide. Or you can spend 100 km (50 euro) on a very large album that also includes a DVD with all the footage presented in the Gallery.
I also went to Srebrenica Genocide Memorial in Potocari, where I viewed the same documentary and saw some of the photos exhibited in Gallery 11/07/95. All I can say is that if you want to know more about Srebrenica but you don't plan to visit the Memorial (2h30m drive from Sarajevo), Gallery 11/07/95 is exactly what you need.

What you see in this exhibition are pictures of some of the genocide victims, pictures taken in the refugee camp in Tuzla, some pictures of some humiliating and racist wall writings of Dutch soldiers who were supposed to secure Srebrenica at that time, a short documentary movie about the genocide, and many hours of movies of witness accounts.

What you don't see, however, are any hard objects which belong to the victims, any story about the mass rapes that occurred during the years of genocide, any written hard evidence such as correspondence between governments and UN, and most importantly, any historical context to provide the observers with the chain of events as well as international and domestic environment which paved the way to such a disaster. Without such a context, everything looks like a result of a sudden madness of the Serbian army and disfunction of UN forces.

In my opinion, the video shown in the gallery was worth the 10 KM entrance fee. I was expecting more of a museum than a photo gallery, so it was a bit different than I thought. The photographs were very thought-provoking, though, and this is a good place to visit if you want to know more about the recent history of Bosnia. There were also computers that provide the visitor with a 4-hour detailed presentation about the events of Srebrenica, and the quide told us that it is possible to come back some other day with the same ticket if one wants to take a closer look at the presentation.

Clearly this is a comprehensive and thought-provoking account of a disgusting page of modern human history but I got very worried about the nature of this 'attraction' and its appeal to tourists when I discovered that only recently the entry price had risen from nothing to 10KM, an astronomical entrance price in the context of Bosnia Herzogovina. I got even more concerned when one of the tripadvisor reviewers mentioned 3 other 'atrocity' pilgrimages he had made on the same tour.

No, we must never forget and yes, we must try and learn the lessons of history (though this rarely happens) but I am not convinced that it is healthy for casual tourists to feel under an emotional obligation to spend several hours wallowing in grief for a tragedy they have no direct connection with and then boast of the fact on every social network site they can broadcast to. If the Gallery makes you feel a duty to behave in this way, then perhaps this sort of 'attraction' is less about revealing the truth than stimulating synthetic emotion.
