About 8,000 Bosnian Muslim males were killed in the Srebrenica Massacre. Dr. Sarah Wagner (Anthropology) worked with and interviewed forensic specialists and family members of those massacred. The results of her multi-year research in the former Yugoslavia resulted in the book ““To Know Where He Lies: DNA Technology and the Search for Srebrenica’s Missing.”

The massacre occurred 16 years ago. She was there last year at the 15th anniversary, when family members visited sites of the mass killing. They saw interior walls riddled with bullet holes. They reached down to touch gun shell casings and bones that remain in the dirt, even after 15 years. And last week, they heard the news: the alleged leader of the massacre had been arrested and would be indicted on war crimes charges. (See feature story.)

Two UNCG MFA graduate students, Adnan Dzumhur and Alice Dull, made a short film of Wagner’s work.
