The other side of war : women's stories of survival & hope by Zainab Salbi ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zainab Salbi's media profile soared with her first book, a memoir of growing up in Saddam Hussein's inner circle. Her foundation, Women for Women International, plays a vital role in helping to heal war-torn nations. Here, with images by award-winning photographers, Salbi presents a collection of letters and first-person narratives by amazing women who survived war's devastation and now must find the strength to rebuild families and communities. Overviews by the author explain how each nation's history led to violent conflict; then the women tell their stories--of horror, cruelty, and suffering, but also of profound inspiration, as they work toward renewal and toward the day their fierce determination is rewarded with productivity, prosperity, and lasting joy.--From publisher description

In 1977, photojournalist Susan Meiselas traveled to Nicaragua to photograph the civil war between General Anastasio Somoza García's dictatorship and the Sandinista opposition. Her book, Nicaragua: June 1978-July 1979, resulted from her two years there. Mieselas returns to Nicaragua a decade later to track down the people -- guerrillas, Socistas and bystanders -- pictured in her original photographs. The people discuss the revolution and how their lives have changed since then. The film is also an inquiry into the relationship between the media and the recording of history

The windmill movie ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Filmmaker Richard P. Rogers tried for twenty years to make a documentary about his own life. He died in 2001, leaving the project unfinished, until his widow, acclaimed photographer Susan Meiselas, commissioned his former student Alexander Olch to make a film out of the pieces. Starting in the Hamptons, in the town of Wainscott, the film weaves Rogers' footage into a journey through childhood memories, a less than encouraging mother, a family background of privilege, and Rogers' persistent, dogged attempts to document his own life. Rogers' friend, actor and writer Wallace Shawn, joins in the process, as the film investigates the differences between documentary and fiction, and tells the tragic story of Rogers' life
