Voices from Srebrenica: An Online Book Panel

Thursday, March 25, 12:00 pm Central Time

Co-hosted by Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center and the Bosnian-American Genocide Institute and Education Center.

Community Partners: War Childhood Museum, Educator’s Institute for Human Rights, #Togetherweremember, Yale University Genocide Studies Program, Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosnian-North American Women’s Association, Congress of North American Bosniaks.

Voices from Srebrenica: Survivor Narratives of the Bosnian Genocide tells the story of fourteen survivors of the Bosnian Genocide. Through their individual narratives, the book forges personal connections with the reader, ensuring that “never forget” and “never again” are more than just catchphrases. This moving book and these stories assure that remembrance and prevention live in the hearts of all those who encounter these harrowing descriptions of trauma and resilience.

Join us for a panel discussion of Voices from Srebrenica with its authors, Ann Petrila and Hasan Hasanović, as well as Emir Suljagić, Director of the Srebrenica Memorial Center. They will be joined by Jessica Hulten, Education Outreach Coordinator, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center; Ida Sefer, President, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute Chicago; and David Pettigrew, Professor, Southern Connecticut State University, and Board Member, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute. Following the discussion, we will open the floor for live questions from the audience.

Free to the public, but a donation is suggested.

Reservations required.
