St. Louis Bosnians

Remembering the Bosnian genocide

Many of the estimated 50,000 Bosnians living in St. Louis are survivors of the Serb-run concentration camps around the city of Prijedor.

Their stories are part of a new exhibit opening Sunday at the St. Louis Holocaust Museum. In 1992, reporter Ed Vulliamy of The Guardian newspaper first told the story of the atrocities at those camps. He’s giving the exhibit’s opening address on Sunday.

Vulliamy tells KWMU’s Matt Sepic that Prijedor was where the worst of the violence began.
