Summary
It was the worst genocide since World War II, but we uncover atrocities on all sides. "I saw the others doing it so I followed in their footsteps, the killing, rape and looting," admits Borislav Herak, a Serbian soldier in Bosnia - encouraged to rape women in the 'Sonja' prison because it was "good for combat morale." Attractive women were sent to 'rape camps.' He describes how he shot his victim in the head. Footage of the notorious warlord, Arkan, shows him terrorising a group of captured Muslims. Arkan's paramilitaries went from village to village committing atrocities and driving out the locals. A young girl tells how her mother was attacked by machine gun fire while working in an orchard. TV pictures of concentration camps remind us of the holocaust, as do convoys of Muslims at Srebrenica being taken to their deaths. The Hague War Crimes Tribunal has evidence that the Serb military leader, General Ratko Mladic, was present at Srebrenica. A chilling copy of Dr. Radovan Karadzic's order to the Serbs troops urges them to "be merciless". Today Balkan people drifting back to their homes confront heaps of rubble. In a ceramics factory, only bloody boots remain of the prisoners who were executed by the retreating Serbs
