After Genocide: Searching for Reconciliation in the Balkans

Full Article by Thomas Albert Howard

 

After Tito’s passing, Zovkic told me, the furies of ethnic resentment returned as if strengthened by a long, invigorating sleep.

Deal with the demons in your unconscious while times are good. They haven’t gone away, they’re just sleeping.

One thought on “After Genocide: Searching for Reconciliation in the Balkans

  1. Tim Snyder says:

    After reading Mr. Howard’s article it will be hard to complain about slow drivers and long lines at the grocery store. It’s hard to imagine, in this day and age, that people can be so cruel and inhumane to their fellow citizens. What must it be like to live in such a place? The author mentions that history is not taught in schools and that is why we say “those that don’t know history are destined to repeat it.” Let’s hope that future generations will learn to be more tolerant. As John Lennon reminds us, “War is not the answer–Give peace a chance.”
