Description

From her unique vantage point as a reporter directly covering the reality and aftermath of genocide in Bosnia and Rwanda, award-winning journalist Elizabeth Neuffer tells the compelling story of two parallel journeys toward justice in each country - that of the international war crime tribunals, and that of the people left behind. In a book packed with devastating stories, including those of victims and perpetrators, forensic experts and tribunal judges, two provide the double backbone of the book's narrative: Hasan Nuhanovic, a Bosnian muslim whose determination to discover the fate of his family lost at Srebrenica sees him mature over the years from a gangling youth to a man with the authority to testify before Congress; and Witness JJ, a Tutsi woman of staggering courage who overcomes her modesty and the dictates of her culture to testify about the rapes that are classified as war crimes.show more
