Kindle ´ Long Live the War á Ed Vulliamy

Wars come and go across the headlines and television screens but for those who survive them scarred and scattered they never end This is a book about pos In August 1992 journalists Ed Vulliamy and Penny Marshall revealed to the world the concentration camps in which the Bosnian Serbs presided over by Radovan Karadžić Ratko Mladic and others kept their primarily Bosnian muslim prisoners in the service of ethnic cleansing Twenty years on Vulliamy attempts to make sense of what he found and what has happened since to those prisoners on both a personal and a political scaleThe book's subtitle is Bosnia the Reckoning but it contains several chapters starting with the word Unreckoning because it seems very little reckoning has taken place among Bosnian Serbs While some of those interned in the camps have returned to their homes they must live among their Bosnian Serb neighbours many of whom participated in the ethnic cleansing in other words raped and tortured them not to mention murdering their friends and relatives Other survivors have scattered to Europe the USA and Australia but remain haunted by what they left behindWhile what happened in the camps was at times horrific Vulliamy does not dwell on this; instead he is interested in what is happening now The survivors are at the heart of the book and Vulliamy uotes them often perhaps because they need to be heard in the face of Serbian obstruction and international amnesia It is their stories I will remember as the rest of the book fades and their stories are the reason I encourage everyone to read this
