Episode 28.5 – Srebrenica, and Where I’ve been

Download Episode!
Hey all. Realise I’ve been gone a while, and I thought I’d share with you my experiences on the Marš Mira (Peace March) and the Srebrenica Genocide commemorations.

Please be aware before listening that much of the subject matter discussed in this episode is by its nature more dark and harrowing than most regular episodes.

Some pictures from the March can be found here.

Some Pictures from Bosnia

Hey all. Here’s a selection of photos from my travels in Bosnia. Most are from the Peace March and the Memorial Centre at Potočari.

Here a space had been deliberately left in the cemetery so that the newly buried man could be laid to rest next to his brothers (the older graves on the right)

NB: At one point in the interview, Jasmin refers to “Brendan Simms’ Triumph of the Lack of Will“. He’s since confirmed to me that he mixed up two books – James Gow’s Triumph of the Lack of Will, and Brendan Simms’ Unfinest Hour. Both are excellent accounts of international involvement in the Yugoslav Wars, and both Jasmin and I would firmly recommend both as further reading.
