Description

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.
