The Bosnian city of Prijedor has been called a “laboratory of ethnic cleansing” for the systematic campaign of terror that began there in 1992 with the violent expulsion of civilian populations and the decimation of its once multiethnic culture. Two decades after the genocide in Prijedor, what can be done to reckon with the terrible events of the past and to restore civil society?
