The story of the Bosnia War between Bosnia and Serbia continues in Part Two of this historic two-part program. Here we learn details of what American officials knew about ethnic cleansing - and what they did with that knowledge - from key figures during this crisis, including Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Roy Gutman, Foreign Editor for Newsday magazine and author of A Witness to Genocide; the former U.S. Asst. Sec. of State for European Affairs and Balkans' policy analyst, John Fox; George Kenney, who resigned his State Department position as a sign of protest; former Sec. of State Lawrence Eagleburger, an architect of U.S. policy in the Balkans; plus Antonio Cassese, the first President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia
Gordon Parks : segregation story by Gordon Parks( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 1956, Life magazine published a photo-essay by Gordon Parks entitled "The Restraints: Open and Hidden," which documented the everyday activities and rituals of one extended African American family living in the rural South under Jim Crow segregation. One of the most powerful photographs depicts Joanne Thornton Wilson and her niece, Shirley Anne Kirksey, standing in front of a theater in Mobile, Alabama, an image which became a forceful "weapon of choice," as Parks would say, in the struggle against racism and segregation. While 26 photographs were eventually published in Life and some were exhibited in his lifetime, the bulk of Parks' assignment was thought to be lost. In 2011, five years after Parks' death, The Gordon Parks Foundation discovered more than 70 color transparencies at the bottom of an old storage bin marked "Segregation Series" that are now published for the first time in Segregation Story

Global Institutions and Human Rights( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After World War II, the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund were established to 'ensure peace and prosperity' throughout the world in the face of the threat of communism. With the fall of the Soviet Union, critics of these organizations argue that they are ill-equipped to deal with human rights issues and the 'new world order.' This classic program examines the need for these organizations to adapt to changing political, economic, and social conditions in the world, and to begin dealing with complex, unforeseen issues such as ethnic conflict, internal disorder, and the breakdown of state institutions. It focuses on the impact of World Bank economic policies imposed on developing countries in the name of global economic reform, suggesting that the interests of foreign investors might be at odds with those of the indigenous populations. Featured here are Lawrence Eagleburger, former Secretary of State; authors David Rieff (Slaughterhouse) and Ian Williams (The UN for Beginners); Mike Jendrecejzyk of Human Rights Watch; Patricia Armstrong, Lawyer's Committee for Human Rights; Shahid Javed Burki, a professional economist who served at the World Bank for 25 years, Lawrence Summers, former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and a member of Barack Obama's Transition Economic Advisory Board; and, lastly, an exclusive interview with Alvaro De Soto, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations

Nigeria by Leslie Semaan( Visual )

3 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The military regime in Nigeria nullified democratic elections, made "extra-judicial" arrests, and exploited indigenous peoples. Human rights activists called for economic sanctions against Nigeria. From interviews with opposing leaders, we get a better understanding of the complexity of the problems during this troubling time. Nigerian Ambassador to the US Zubair Kazaure states that economic sanctions are unnecessary and misleading, while Gerald LeMelle of Amnesty International expresses his concerns about the enormous numbers of prisoners in Nigeria. Wole Soyinka, a Nigerian Nobel Prize winning writer, speaks of his political activism against the military regime, while UN Ambassador Ibrahim Gambari, argues that a developing nation cannot be held to the same standards as developed ones. Archbishop Desmond Tutu speaks of the many arrests and unfair imprisonment of Nigerians, and US Assistant Secretary of State John Shattuck talks about the US commitment to change its general approach to Nigeria. Alfred Lehn of Symms & Lehn Inc. explains why his firm conducts business in Nigeria, and Mike Fleshman of the Africa Fund details the ties between the Nigerian and US governments. Kakuna Kerina from the Committee to Protect Journalists talks of the amount of misinformation about Nigeria in US newspapers, and Gay McDougall, of the International Human Rights Law Group, speaks on the commitment to restore democracy in Nigeria
Chechnya : Russia's human rights nightmare( Visual )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2004 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For over one hundred years, people of Chechnya have been fighting for self determination from the Russian State. In 1944, Stalin destroyed Chechnya and expelled its residents to central Russia. In 1991, a reborn Chechnya proclaimed its independence from Russia, but President Yeltsin viewed this as a threat to Russian sovereignty, and in spite of self-proclaimed peace plans, he ordered the military to intervene. A Chechnyan militia of farmers and craftsman began a campaign of resistance and sabotage in an effort to combat the Russian military. This program profiles the six-year war in Chechnya, with footage documenting war crimes, genocide, and other human rights violations. A video diary from Thomas Goltz documents the Russian Army's annihilation of the Chechnyan town of Samashki where thousands of civilians perished at the hands of 'drunken, doped-up soldiers.' The program also includes a profile of human rights hero, Fred Cuny, who mysteriously disappeared in Chechnya while attempting to come to the aid of the Chechnyan people

Freedom of speech and the right to a free media are the issues in this historic program. Our first story deals with the lack of media independence in post-communist Hungary. Interviews are conducted with government and media leaders, including Istvan Csurka, vice president of Prime Minister Jozsef Antall's political party, Csaba Gombar, President of Hungarian Radio, and Izabella Kiraly, a member of the Democratic Forum Party. We see Hungarian President Arpad Goncz being booed off the stage when he refuses to fire the heads of radio and television. We learn that Elemer Hankiss, the President of Hungarian TV, resigns as he speaks of the situation, and we meet Akos Mester one of Hungary's 129 fired radio journalists. In the next story we learn of the terrible shootings of journalists worldwide. William A. Orme, Jr., Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Journalists (1992-1998), explains why these journalists are singled out for shootings and harassment. Kalala Mbenga Kalao, a journalist from Zaire, and Kim Brice and Leonid Zagalasky, both members of the Committee to Protect Journalists, share their knowledge of abuse to journalists in countries around the world. The last story deals with whether writers should be activists. Lawrence Weschler of The New Yorker and Breyten Breytenbach, a South African author who was once jailed for his activism, share their opinions. Marina Komarecki, the US Correspondent for Radio B92, explains what the station is all about, and Sonja Licht, a member of Open Society Fund in Yugoslavia, tells her story

This classic program first offers a profile of Father Ricardo Rezende and his work defending peasants in the Brazilian Amazon. To many Rezende is an unsung hero defending the poor though his efforts have also angered many cattle ranchers, which has led to several attempts against his life. Next, the death penalty is an-going controversy in the United States; in some states it is abolished, while in others it is strongly supported; here we hear from a victim's family apposed to the death penalty, saying it doesn't properly measure the anguish of losing a loved one. Next, since 1983 the Sri Lankan Civil War has been ongoing intermittently between the government and a militant organization called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE), who are fighting for the creation of an independent state, which they want named Tamil Eelam. Over 68,000 people have been killed since the conflict began. This segment takes a look behind a number of the assassinations and features author William McGowan (Only Man is Vile). Next, a view of Cambodia as it moves toward democracy features Elizabeth Farnsworth (The NewsHour) and Sidney Jones (Asia Watch). Next, we learn of experimental documentaries in the UK produced by the Black Audio Film Collective from filmmaker John Ahomfrah and Wilfred Little, Malcolm X's brother. Lastly, the Romanian music video, Revolution, ponders whether anything has changed in this country since its revolution in 1989

One of the most reported on conflicts in the world for many years has been the dispute between Israel and Palestine over the same area of land. Today, the majority of Israelis and Palestinians are edging towards peace. Looking back in this historical documentary, we meet individuals who have been involved with and part of this on-going peace process, including writer Michelle Walden, the granddaughter of Shimon Peres, the ninth President of the State of Israel; also Terje Larsen, the former UN Under Secretary General, who worked on the implementation of the 2006 cease-fire resolution. At the heart of the program are video diaries of two young women: Suher Ismail, from a Palestinian center, and Einat Kapch, from an Israeli settlement, who express their own personal feelings and reactions to this emotional conflict

Kosovo and Tajikistan( Visual )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Assembly of Kosovo declared its country's independence as a Republic in February of 2008; however, Serbia continues to claim sovereignty over Kosovo, which keeps this Balkan country a potential hot spot for conflict. As Chapter One of this historical documentary points out, this dispute dates back over 600 years to the Battle of Kosovo, when Kosovo was lost to Turkish invaders, yet Serbians see the battle as a symbol of patriotism. The former president of Serbia, Slobodan Milosevic, used the anniversary of this important event to arouse nationalism against Kosovo and to accuse its Albanian majority of genocide against the Serbian minority, which eventually led to the Kosovo War, a conflict that did not end until June 1999. Chapter Two focuses on Tajikistan, strategically located north of Afghanistan, where from 1992 to 1997, the country was torn apart by a devastating civil war, killing an estimated 50,000 people. Here we get perspectives of this Central Asian country from Barnett R. Rubin, formerly the Director of the Ctr. for the Study of Central Asia at Columbia University, and today is a Senior Fellow at NYU's Ctr. on Intl. Cooperation and the author of The Fragmentation of Afghanistan; also from Shahrbanou Tadjbakhsh, formerly at the School of IPA at Columbia University, and today is the Director of the CERI Program for Peace and Human Security at L'Institut d' Etudes Politiques in Paris

Human Rights advocates call for the creation of a "human rights culture" to promote freedom, equality, and coexistence throughout the world. This historic program examines three initiatives which seek to break down the barriers of segregation, misunderstanding, and conflict. It begins with an excerpt from the film A Leap of Faith, which profiles the Cranmore School in Northern Ireland, where children of Protestant and Catholic parents attend integrated classes in an effort to break down traditional barriers of hatred and conflict. Next, viewers see portions of a work-in-progress about the "Seas of Peace Summer Camp," where young adults from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and Egypt work and play together, develop listening skills, and begin to share problems. The program ends with Charlayne Hunter-Gault's in-depth interview of former Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who talks of the efforts of the "Truth Commission" in South Africa, and of the need to acknowledge the truth about the atrocities of Apartheid as a prerequisite to the unification of the peoples of South Africa. A dream he saw come true with the end of Apartheid in 1994, the first democratic elections were held in South Africa

Although the campaign of violence in Northern Ireland between Nationalists, the Catholic minority, and the Unionists, predominantly Protestants, was never declared a civil war, it was popularly know as "The Troubles"; sadly, this bitter conflict claimed over 3,000 lives over 25 years, which ended in 1998 with the signing of the Belfast Agreement, also called "the Good Friday Agreement" or the G.F.A. This historical documentary introduces viewers to a significant number of individuals who were involved in this battle for Civil Rights. Laura Flanders reports on the discord; also we meet Marie Mulholland, a community organizer; Gerry Campbell, a Ford Motor Company employee; John Keanie, the Derry town clerk; Eamonn McCann, a Civil Rights activists; Andrew Tyndall, a media analyst, who, today, is editor of the Tyndall Report; also Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, the youngest woman ever elected to the British parliament. She wrote the book, The Price of My Soul, which publicized discrimination against Roman Catholics in her country. Worth noting is, in 2003, she was barred from entering the United States and deported by the State Department, which declared her "a serious threat to the security of the U.S."
