    One thought on “Surviving the Bosnian Genocide: The Women of Srebrenica Speak”

    1. It was a beautiful collection of memories. I was glad I had context to the genocide, since this doesn't always follow a coherent order you would need for a first encounter with the history. It is important to hear and give women the opportunity to speak, especially when they have been abused, ignored, and silenced for so long.

    2. Oral histories have the power to relate a huge array about the human experience and Leydesdorff's collection of testimony from the genocide in Srebrenica conveys the full weight of tragedy and isolation felt by the women who survived.I will have a full review of this book in a forthcoming issue of the Oral History Review from Oxford University Press.

    3. One of the most emotional and shocking books I've ever read. I loved that the author didn't just focus on the genocide itself, she asked the women about their life before the genocide. When we learn about genocide, we don't learn about the aftermath or the survivors. This is what this book is about - women living with the trauma of witnessing unchecked brutality, being subjected to sexual and/or physical assault, poverty, and the pain of having their relatives killed only for their religion and [...]

    4. Good to read, for better understanding.Verschrikkelijk was er in Srebenica is gebeurd en nog triester is dat de overlevenden weinig hulp krijgen. Ze zijn ook nu nog vooral bezig met overleven en hebben hun verlies nog geen plaats kunnen geven. Dit boek gaf mij inzicht in de gruwelijkheden die in Bosnie hebben afgespeeld . Gruwelijk maar boeiend
