For the first time here is a publicly available account of the terror and inhumanities experienced by those seeking sanctuary from genocide and placing their lives and their trust in the hands of the peace keepers. Unarmed, starved and deprived of basic humanitarion needs the people of the 'safe haven' of Srebrenica placed their complete reliance on the promise of protection by the United Nations The book is compiled from first hand experience of the events by Hasan himself as well as other survivors of the genocide. It provides a detailed chronology covering the days leading up to the notorious 7/11 when the genocide of Bosnian Muslims in Srebrenica began and the subsequent period during which the world media continued to propagate the message that nothing sinister was going on: it took the best part of six years before genocide was officially deemed to have taken place in 2001. This unique account is both an exhilarating read and a major point of historical reference.
Hasan Nuhanovic was a translator for the UN during the events and lost his family in the genocide. He provides a poignant and painful comentary on the events.
