The Southeast Europe Association and the University of Regensburg invite to a book presentation with Hikmet Karčić, Holocaust and Genocide Scholar from Sarajevo, about his latest book “Torture, Humiliate, Kill. Inside the Bosnian Serb Camp System”.
The recently published book develops the author’s collective traumatization theory, which contends that the concentration camps set up by the Bosnian Serb authorities had the primary purpose of inflicting collective trauma on the non-Serb population of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Hikmet Karčić's outline of the main findings of his book will be followed by a discussion with historian Heike Karge from the University of Regensburg.
