Prijedor: Lives from the Bosnian Genocide

October 4, 2013 to October 30, 2013
Location: Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library, Texas Tech University, 15th and Detroit, Lubbock
Time: All Day

The exhibit, Prijedor: Lives from the Bosnian Genocide, tells the story of genocide in the Bosnian city of Prijedor between 1992 and 1995. Thirty-four display panels and a forty-minute video combine information from official sources, including the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, with original photographs and compelling testimony from genocide survivors now living in St. Louis, MO.  The exhibit honors both the memory of the lives lost in the Prijedor genocide and the experiences of the survivors whose stories are told within the exhibit. The exhibit’s targeted audience is Texas residents, particularly college students, middle and high school students, and educators.

Texas Tech University's Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library in Lubbock is the second of eight planned venues in Texas for this exhibit.
