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

Glenn Ruga | Bosnia and Herzegovina

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.

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.

During three trips to Bosnia between 1995 and 1997, Glenn Ruga, Frank Ward, and Barbara Ayotte recorded the stories of people in Bosnia who have survived ethnic cleansing and genocide. As they rebuilt their lives, refugees, professionals, and government officials talk about their past experiences and their hopes for a united and multi-ethnic Bosnia.
