The Tenth Circle of Hell - A Memoir of Life in the Death Camps of Bosnia by Rezak Hukanovic.
rrp £12.99 Observer Price £9.99 + 99p p&p
The first autobiographical account of the crimes committed by the Serbs, The Tenth Circle of Hell bears witness not only from the war in Bosnia, but gives the prisoner's-eye-view from within the nightmare of a concentration camp. It is the judicious and unarguable record of what happened in a satanic place called Camp Omarska.
"Hukanovic reveals what actually occurred, in all its spine-chilling brutality. We, the press, have been accused of 'exaggerating' the horrors of Bosnia. The truth is quite the opposite: the hidden reality, coming slowly to light in defiance of a world that is reluctant to know it, was infinitely worse" Ed Vulliamy, The Observer.
