Lunch & Learn: Voices from Srebrenica – An Online Book Panel
March 25, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Virtual Program | March 25, 12:00 pm (CDT)
Voices from Srebrenica: Survivor Narratives of the Bosnian Genocide tells the story of fourteen survivors of the Bosnian Genocide. Through individual narratives of trauma and resilience, the book forges personal connections with the reader, ensuring that “never forget” and “never again” are more than just catchphrases. This moving book assures that remembrance and prevention live in the hearts of readers.
Join us for a panel discussion of Voices from Srebrenica with its authors, Ann Petrila and Hasan Hasanović, as well as Emir Suljagić, Director of the Srebrenica Memorial Center. They will be joined by Jessica Hulten, Education Outreach Coordinator, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center; Ida Sefer, President, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute Chicago; and David Pettigrew, Professor, Southern Connecticut State University, and Board Member, Bosnian-American Genocide Institute. Following the discussion, we will open the floor for live questions from the audience.
Co-hosted by Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center and the Bosnian-American Genocide Institute and Education Center.
