The horrors of Bosnia

January 10, 1995



When Steven Spielberg received his well-deserved Oscar for ``Schindler's List,'' he urged us not to forget the horrors of the Holocaust. However, he forgot to mention the holocaust that is going on in Europe. Thousands of people are giving their lives in Bosnia for their ethnic origin. The word ``ethnic cleansing'' has become a cliche. The recent cease-fire has produced some hope for peace, but full peace can never be achieved as long as the war criminals are free. It can only be achieved when justice will be done to those who have suffered the ultimate trauma of war. I would rather watch the trial of the war criminals right now than a ``Schindler's List II,'' many years later, when it will be too late. Junaid Ahmed, Bloomington, Ill.
