Heart-wrenching truth of crescendo to Bosnian massacre
Raw. Painful. Brilliantly edited interviews of (and by) Bosniak survivors. Parents. Soldiers. Children. Brutal truth. Brave, sometimes heart-wrenching revelations. Poignant reminder of recent history lest we becomecomplacent.
Bold, Necessary Storytelling
As a refugee from the Yugoslav Wars, this podcast hits home. Though its focus is hard to listen to at times, it is much needed. I see myself, and my communities, past and present represented here.
In a time of global upheaval, of genocidal denial, it is a reminder that these stories must be told, and that the people who have survived must be elevated.
Three cheers to the team behind this, and endless gratitude to those who witnessed the horrors first-hand, and are telling your stories.
