Bosnian Massacre Featured at Wash U Holocaust Talk
ST. LOUIS (AP) - An anthropologist who has researched the aftermath of mass killings in the former Yugoslavia will speak at Washington University in St. Louis as part of the school's annual Holocaust memorial lecture.
George Washington University assistant professor Sarah Wagner has written about the use of DNA to identify victims of the 1995 murders of 8,000 Muslim men in the Bosnian city of Srebrenica. The killings by Bosnian Serb forces have been called Europe's worst massacre since World War II.
Wagner speaks at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Umrath Hall on the Washington University campus.
St. Louis is home to nearly 70,000 Bosnians, making the city home to the largest such community outside the country now known as Bosnia-Herzegovina.
