I Came to Testify

One of a five-part PBS film series funded by NEH, this is the moving story of how a group of sixteen women who had been imprisoned by Serb-led forces in the Bosnian town of Foca broke history’s great silence – and stepped forward to take the witness stand in an international court of law. Teacher resources and comments by viewers are included on the website.
