Bosnia’s Foca river valley was the site of some of the worst atrocities in the mid-1990s, when Bosnian Serbs executed and imprisoned Muslim and Croat civilians. Women, War & Peace visits the region 15 years on to interview Muslims who are finally returning to the area, as well as community leaders working to rebuild despite on-going ethnic tensions.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs have largely migrated to different regions in the country along ethnic lines. Our interactive map illustrates this persistent tension by showing the shifting ethnic distributions within Bosnia and Herzegovina before, during and after the Dayton Accords.
Women, War & Peace Associate Producer Jessie Beauchaine is in Bosnia and Herzegovina. In the coming weeks our team will journey to places where some of the war’s worst atrocities against Bosnia’s women took place.
