Exhibit Title: Zones of Separation: The Struggle for a Multi-ethnic Bosnia

Location: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Caption: Most of the refugees here are from eastern Bosnia, the areas closest to Serbia that were the first to be overrun and cleansed during April and May 1992.

The Serb nationalists were as successful in cleansing these areas of Muslims as the Nazis were in cleansing eastern Europe of Jews, but the Serbs did it more quickly. Perhaps the numb expressions on these children's faces can explain what they experienced better than words can. All we know is that they watched as their parents were killed.
