Bosnian Genocide in 1995
Outline Plan
Bosnian Genocide was a terrible act of murder which started when Muslims and Croats voted for independence in referendum that was boycotted by Serbs In 1992.When the European Union recognized Bosnian’s independence the war broke out and Serb’s occupied the country. I chose to do my Research about this while studying The Rwanda Genocide in 1994. I discovered that Rwanda wasn’t the only genocide that happened in the past and I really wanted to learn something about the attack in Srebrenica in 1995, where around 8,000 people were killed. By doing this research study I hope to improve my research skills which will be a great start before I go to university. I hope it will help me make my note-taking and reading better but also it will be an independent form of learning. My aim is to find out what actually happened in 1995 and to learn what I can about this part of history. The sources that I used were Internet and a book. At first I will do some general reading about the event and then I will focus more on my topic. Sources:

However some sites were biased and unfair which meant that I had to compare a lot of different sites. Then I read all of my sources and I began to taking notes. It was so useful for me when I started to write my essay because I had the main information that I needed together in one place. At the beginning of my essay I found it hard to do, but later I knew how I want in to look like and what I want to say write. I wrote out a rough draft which was too short so I had to add more details about the event.
