Bosnia: A Question of Genocide

Program #NAGW001. Recorded in Gainesville, FL on September 12, 1994.

The breakup of Yugoslavia triggered a catastrophe in the Balkans. Bosnia, which declared its independence in 1992, has become synonymous with death and destruction on a scale not seen in Europe since the Nazi era. Unlike the genocide of the Jews, the killings in Bosnia are a matter of near-universal knowledge. Under media observation, large areas are "ethnically cleansed," a euphemism for mass murder. The centuries old Muslim community has been targeted for persecution. The admonition "Never Again" rings hollow in Bosnia.

Speaker(s):

Winston Nagan
