It is the wrong education of some Serbs (both formal, in schools, and informal, from family elders) that led them to commit the unspeakable atrocities at Srebenica. Most scientists agree that people a born “tabula rasa”, that is, without prejudices. People are not born evil; they may become so via education or experience. Serbs are not the only ones. There are many other people around the world who would do the same if they believed they’d go unpunished. Hence, I think it important for the long-term survival of the human race to figure out how people acquire the mentality of mass-murderers. I think sociologists and psychologists should try to find out for example, how two people, living in the same geographical area could behave so differently from each other. Why some Serbs committed the atrocities at Srebenica, Sarajevo, Vucovar against people of the same or close ethnicity, while Albanians saved total strangers (both by ethnicity and religion) at the risk of there own lives.
