[ Balkan | -s ]

The Bosnian Institute in London will have - within its Framework of the Monthly Forum (this time on Monday 5 September 2005) - a Contribution on Renewal and remembrance in Bosanska Krajina by Kemal Pervanić, Sebina Sivac and Isabelle Wesselingh. The panel discussion will be introduced by Ed Vulliamy.
Kemal Pervanić’s The Killing Days is a classic account of Omarska by a survivor.
Sebina Sivac, likewise from the area, is writing a Ph.D. on memory and memorials in relation to Kozarac.
Isabelle Wesselingh, who as AFP correspondent in Holland since 1999 has covered the relevant trials at the Hague tribunal, is the co-author (with Arnaud Vaulerin) of Raw Memory: Prijedor, laboratory of ethnic cleansing, published this summer by Saqi Books in association with The Bosnian Institute.
Ed Vulliamy, Guardian journalist and author of Seasons in Hell, was one of the first Western reporters (with Roy Gutman of Newsday and ITN’s Penny Marshall) to reveal in August 1992 the existence of murderous concentration camps - Keraterm, Manjaca, Omarska, Trnopolje - run by the Serb extremist forces of Radovan Karadžić and Ratko Mladić.

The purchase by Mittal Steel of the Omarska mine complex, and the campaign by camp survivors to ensure continued exhumation of possible mass grave sites and the establishment of an appropriate memorial to the victims, have given this theme new and particular urgency.

Monday 5 September 2005, 7.00 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the
