Date Tue, Mar 29, 11:00am - 12:30pm
Duration   1h 30m

In a conflict that introduced the concept of rape camps into international consciousness, the 1992-1995 Bosnian War continues to have serious repercussions for the survivors of sexual violence left in its wake. Three decades later, the memorialization of women’s wartime experiences remains a challenge as they continue to fight for justice, financial reparations, psychological support, and community acceptance. Join the Harriet and Kenneth Kupferberg Holocaust Center for a conversation about the devastating impact that this deliberate war waged on women’s bodies has had at the individual, communal, and national levels. Featuring Sabiha Husić, Director of Association "Medica" Zenica, an NGO working with women and children survivors of war rape and sexual violence; Hasan Hasanović, Head of the Oral History Project at the Srebrenica Genocide Memorial; Ann Petrila, Professor of the Practice and Coordinator of Global Initiatives at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Social Work; and Tanya Domi, Adjunct Assistant Professor of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs and an affiliate faculty member of the Harriman Institute.
