The Academy Award–nominated 2020 film Quo vadis, Aida? tells the story of Aida, a translator for the UN in Srebrenica, Bosnia, in 1995, when the Serbian Army laid siege to the small town. Created by filmmaker Jasmila Žbanić, the film has been celebrated for opening a door for survivors of the Bosnian genocide to tell their own stories. The book Voices from Srebrenica: Survivor Narratives of the Bosnian Genocide preserves the personal stories of numerous survivors of the Srebrenica genocide. Join authors Ann Petrila and Hasan Hasanović, along with moderator Elvir Ahmetovic for a conversation inspired by Quo vadis, Aida? and Voices from Srebrenica about the importance of survivor stories and reclaiming the narrative.

[CANCELLED-TO BE RESCHEDULED] Fighting Bigotry & Hatred: Center for Bosnian Studies

Adna Karamehic-Oates, Center for Bosnian Studies
Benjamin Moore, Center for Bosnian Studies

Mirowitz Center at Covenant Place

10:00 AM

Recently opened on the Fontbonne University campus, the new Center for Bosnian Studies is establishing an enduring record of the experiences of Bosnian genocide survivors and their families. The Center’s mission is to counter the hate and discrimination that fueled the war in Bosnia and continues to fuel innumerable conflicts worldwide. While the Center is new, the historical and cultural preservation initiative began when the Bosnian Memory Project was founded in 2006. Today, the Center focuses on the estimated 60,000 Bosnian refugees in metropolitan St. Louis, the largest group living outside of Bosnia. Join Director Adna Karamehic-Oates and Senior Researcher Benjamin Moore for a compelling presentation about the Center’s growing collection of digital oral histories of survivors and their families, special rare items, and other unique resources related to Bosnia and its diaspora. This program is part of the Mirowitz Center's "Fighting Bigotry & Hatred" series.
