Editorial Reviews


'A beautifully turned work. He does not rant or insult; he just tells the story of Srebrenica.' The Economist 'Just to bear witness would be enough but Suljagiae writes with the skill of an accomplished novelist.' The Observer 'An excellent book.' The New York Review of Books 'A moving testimony of a survivor, published to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Srebrenica massacre.' Bookseller 'A wrenching, brutally graphic account of those years under siege.' Metro

Book Description

Against all odds, Emir Suljagic survived siege and massacre. He dedicates this moving testimony to the memory of the victims of genocide. In May 1992, Bosnian Serb forces attacked Srebrenica, preventing food and supplies from coming in, and killing anyone who tried to get out. As more and more refugees fled to Srebrenica from the surrounding villages in search of safety conditions became unbearable. Teachers murdered former students, doctors murdered former patients--the guiding principle was to kill or be killed. Finally, after three years of agony, Srebrenica was destroyed. In July 1995 the town fell and over seven thousand were massacred.

By Leandro Ariel Prada on August 8, 2007
Format: Paperback
The first-person story told by one of the few lucky ones who got out of hell (or Srebrenica for that matter, the same thing) is a page-turner for people who really want to know what was life back then.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is poorly structured with a heavy bias on Bosnian emotion and also has factual concerns about most events he "witnessed" or "heard". Alot of his stories I believe are more rumour mill stuff than fact, given he was 17 at the time I wouldn't be surprised.

His hatred of serbs is plain to see and this inevitably impairs the quality of the book. He knows much more than he is willing to tell but only wants to harp over how good and innocent the Bosnians were whilst it was the serbs who did all the butchering. It is a book written from a narrow and selective memory and should be taken lighlty if only the subject matter wasn't so serious.

Throw it away. A much better read (with facts) is Honig and Both's Srebrenica:Record of a war crime.
