On May 13 1992, the Bosnian civil war finally came to Prijedo, a once-peaceful city where Muslims, Croats and Serbs had lived side by side for centuries. The Serb occupation of Prijedor was an exercise in what the victors called 'ethnic cleansing' whereby the town's Muslim and Croat citizens were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. Among those who lived though the nightmare was the journalist Rewak Hukanovic, whose riveting memoir chronicles the crimes against humanity that were committed by the Bosnian Serbs in the death camps of Omarska and Manjaca. Through the summer and fall of that endless year, Hukanovic and his friends, colleagues, relatives and neighbours were subjected to terror , torture, and grisly death. Through his unbelieving eyes we see the patina of civilization stripped away from aggressor and victim alike, revealing a brutality that calls into question all our notions of human decency.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Hukanovic's book merits a prominent place in the catologue of witness to twentieth century horror - LITERARY REVIEW

The evil of those camps has never been recorded as coherently or directly as this - OBSERVER

It is imperative to read this book... One emerges from it as from a terrible nightmare, crushed by a hatred at once ancestral and constantly present. - Elie Wiesel- from the Foreword

Mr Hukanovic certainly deserves a place next to others who have written memorably about similar subjects: Primo Levi (the Nazi camps) - NEW YORK TIMES
