The Drina River flows calmly through the lush, rolling hills of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It’s a serene and idyllic scene until you learn about the atrocities along its banks during the Bosnian War in the early 1990s. In her book, Genocide on the Drina River, Edina Becirevic sheds light on the horrific genocide in this region. Through detailed research and heart-wrenching stories, Becirevic paints a harrowing picture of the mass killings, rapes, and forced deportations carried out against Bosniak Muslims by Bosnian Serb forces. It’s a powerful and sobering read that serves as a reminder of the dangers of nationalism and the importance of recognizing and preventing genocide.
