During the 1992-1995 war in Bosnia and Herzegovina the village found itself in the Srebrenica enclave. However in early March 1993 the Serb army overran the area expelling the population west to Tuzla and east to Srebrenica. In 1995 when the Srebrenica enclave was overrun many of the people who were killed in the ensuing Srebrenica massacre were killed in and around Cerska, as it was on the way to Tuzla which is where the majority of survivors fled to.
Mass murderer Sulejman Talović was born in Cerska on October 6, 1988.
