In 1992, photographer Velija Hasanbegović was nearly executed alongside his brother and father on the banks of the Drina River in Bosnia. Though he escaped, nearly 3,000 of his fellow Bosnian Muslims would be killed in and around his hometown of Visegrad that year alone.

Last summer, he returned to the site of his near execution to photograph the exhumation of hundreds of human remains and document the aftermath of the killings. That story is told in a series of 75 images, "Visegrad Genocide Memories," an exhibition that came to Central European University this March.
