IHRLI Sound Recordings on the Former Yugoslav Wars
Around 23 hours of live coverage of fact-finding missions conducted 1991-1993 to uncover crimes committed during the wars in the former Yugoslavia, including sound recordings of exhumations and forensic examinations, testimonies from victims of ethnic cleansing in Bosnia and Croatia, unedited recordings of the shelling of Dubrovnik, and radio programs on the use of rape against Muslim women.
The series consists of copies of materials gathered by the United Nations Commission of Experts established in October 1992 to collect, examine and analyze evidence of grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions and other violations of international humanitarian law committed on the territory of former Yugoslavia between 1992-1994. The materials were donated to OSA by M. Cherif Bassiouni, Chairman of the UN Commission of Experts and President of the International Human Rights Law Institute (IHRLI) at DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois.
Part of the Records of the International Human Rights Law Institute Relating to the Conflict in the Former Yugoslavia (IHRLI) collection.
