Srđan Aleksić (Срђан Алексић) (died 27 January 1993) was a Bosnian Serb amateur actor and a perspective swimmer from Trebinje. He is known for losing his life in trying to defend his fellow citizen by being beaten to death.
Aleksić's father Rade Aleksić was a basketball coach. His mother died at early age, and his brother died in a hang glider accident, above the Petrovo field, near Trebinje.
Srđan received several awards as an amateur actor, and has continued to act during the Bosnian War, in a play San ratne noći ("War night's dream"). He was also a prospective swimmer of the former Yugoslavia. During the Bosnian War, he was recruited as a member of the Army of the Republika Srpska. He died on 27 January 1993.
On 21 January 1993, a group of Army of the Republika Srpska soldiers inspected several people at the Trebinje market. After establishing that one of them, Alen Glavović, is a Bosniak, they started harassing and beating him. Srđan immediately tried to aid Glavović, but the four soldiers turned against him, and have instead of Glavović, beaten Srđan to death with their rifle butts. Due to the incurred injuries, Srđan fell into a coma, and died on 27 January 1993. Srđan's father wrote in his obituary that "Srđan died carrying out his human duty".
One of the attackers on Srđan was killed during the war, whilst the rest were convicted to twenty-eight months in prison.
Srđan Aleksić has been post mortem granted a Charter of the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Street of Great Trees (ulica velikih drveta) in Sarajevo has been, 15 years after Srđan's departure, been named after him. The explanation for renaming stated: "Without people like Srđan Aleksić and his heroic deeds, one would lose hope in humanity, and without it our life would have no meaning".
A pass in Zmaj-Jovina's street in Novi Sad is scheduled to be named after Srđan, and a memorial board will be placed in his honour.
Alen Glavović today lives in Sweden, and is married with two kids. Every year he visits Trebinje, Srđan's grave and his father.
In 2007 Radio Television of Serbia recorded and broadcasted a documentary on Srđan Laksić, named "SRĐO" (hypocoristic form of Srđan).
Trebinjan theatre Slovo has in December 28th 2008 performed a memorial play Epilog which talks about the life of Srđan Aleksić. During his life, Srđan was a member of the theatre Slovo. The play was directed by Predrag Ćurić, and the role of Srđan was played by young Serbian actor Al Drubi Kristian.

Za ovo treba imati ono ljudsko u sebi.Koliko vas misli da je to ljudsko zadrzalo u sebi?
Jeli vam mozak ispran poslje svega?Prepoznajete li sebe danas?
Sve u svemu neka je laka zemlja Srdjanu.
