A Survivor of the War in Bosnia Recounts His Experience | FRONTLINE

Elvedin Pasic was 14 years old when his village was attacked by Bosnian Serb forces. His emotional story about the last time he saw his father was the first testimony in the trial of General Ratko Mladić — whose forces carried out the genocide of 7,000 Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica, among other crimes.

In this scene from “The Trial of Ratko Mladić,” the prosecution team prepares Pasic for trial and discusses his importance as a witness. His story “really demonstrates the way Mladić approached war and his willingness to commit terrible crimes,” said lead prosecutor Dermot Groome.
