Amir Karadzic, a survivor of the early 1990s Bosnian genocide, spoke at Gardner-Webb University in a special “Life of the Scholar” program presentation on Wednesday, and then addressed several humanities classes on Thursday. Karadzic testified to the brutality he witnessed firsthand in his hometown Príjedor, and urged Gardner-Webb students to remember the humanity of their neighbors, and to prevent such atrocities from happening in the future. From 1992 until 1995, thousands of non-Serb Bosnians in the region of Príjedor suffered theft, displacement, rape and brutal death at the hands of Serbian ultra-nationalists who hoped to claim the region for a secessionist Serbian state.
