Channel: SWR2
Date: June 11, 2012
Language: German
Duration: 24:50 min.

Description: »So ist der Krieg eben - das muss sich die Bosniakin Bakira Hasecic auch heute noch anhören. Es waren ehemalige Freunde und Nachbarn, die mitmachten bei einer Politik der ethnischen Säuberung, in der Zigtausende muslimischer Frauen vergewaltigt wurden, und das mit bitterem Erfolg: In der vor dem Krieg zu gleichen Teilen muslimischen und serbisch-orthodoxen Stadt Visegrad leben heute fast ausschließlich Serben. Keine Frau will auf der Straße ihrem Vergewaltiger begegnen. Bakira Hasecic ist mit ihrer Familie nach Sarajevo gezogen. Dort erzählt sie wieder und wieder ihre Geschichte und kämpft um Wahrheit und Gerechtigkeit.«
