Administrator Power at a Press Availability in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

January 20, 2022

It’s good to be back here in Bosnia. I had the privilege to live and work here during the dark days of the war. My experience here changed my life and gave me the motivation to dedicate my career to trying to promote the cause of peace and human rights. Bosnia and Herzegovina finds itself at a very difficult crossroads now. I have just come from a meeting, a very powerful meeting, with three survivors of the wartime prisoner camps. These are individuals who suffered horribly in prisoner camps. And hearing their stories was a reminder that this country and the great people of this country can never go back. Politics are hard. But war is horrific.
