A six-episode series focusing on the genocide in Prijedor
In 2021, we partnered with Remembering Srebrenica UK for Season 2 of Untold Killing, a six episode series that focuses on the Prijedor region of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the early stages of the war and genocide. “This season will cover the camps’ political, international, and ideological implications, the personal stories of the Bosniaks held there, and the long-lasting effects on the camp survivors and their families, who now live scattered across the world (Message Heard / Remembering Srebrenica & Remembering Srebrenica UK, Untold Killing - Season 2 Trailer 2022).” Survivors from the diaspora as well as survivors who are still living in Bosnia and Herzegovina have been interviewed to retell the brutal story of Prijedor and focus on the stories of concentration camp survivors and victims.
Season 2 - Trailer
In Season 2 of Untold Killing, we explore the story of Prijedor - one Bosnian municipality’s descent from a peaceful, multi-ethnic society into a collection of burning towns and torture-filled concentration camps. Over six episodes, this season will cover the camps’ political, international, and ideological implications, the personal stories of the Bosniaks held there, and the long-lasting effects on the camp survivors and their families, who now live scattered across the world.
Episode 1: The Discovery
In the late summer of 1992, a group of British journalists travelled to the lions’ den of the Bosnian War to investigate claims of brutal concentration camps filled with thousands of civilians. What they found there, during the course of just one day, confirmed their worst fears. And showed the world the true nature of a war that was just getting started.
Episode 3: The Camps
The detainees' lives changed completely from one day to another after being taken to the concentration camp. Now revolving around torture, killings and everpresent fear, they had to adjust to a new kind of existence in the long hot days of a Bosnian summer.
Episode 3: The Killing Days
With each passing day, the conditions in the Bosnian Serb-run concentration camps get more brutal and less human. In July 1992, detainees die and live at the whim of their guards who come up with ever more twisted ways of torturing and killing their former neighbours and friends.
