In 2008, one of Europe's most wanted fugitives, the former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic, was arrested in Belgrade for war crimes. Karadzic had been in hiding for more than a decade, pretending to be an alternative medicine healer called "Dr Dabic". Serbia's former war crimes prosecutor Vladimir Vuckevic remembers the tense days that led to Karadzic's capture. PHOTO: Radovan Karadzic in 1992 (Getty Images)

Author Jordan Steven Sher, a social worker and former teacher based in California, joins Lera and Cullan to talk about his new historical fiction novel which authentically and carefully explores the grossly overlooked Bosnian Genocide of Muslims and Catholic Croats during the Bosnian War of 1992-95, as carried out by Slobodan Milošević. You can find out more about Jordan's book (entitled And Still We Rise: A Novel About the Genocide in Bosnia) through his website www.jordanstevensher.com. ABOUT THE BOOK https://atmospherepress.com/books/and-still-we-rise-a-novel-about-the-genocide-in-bosnia-by-jordan-steven-sher/ Based on real-life events, in spring, 1992 in Prijedor, Bosnia, the Kovacevic's, a Muslim family, is confronted with the harsh reality that they are the targets of a brutal campaign to rid the country of non-Serbs. Neighbors turn on neighbors as the nationalist Serb propaganda leads to the so-called “ethnic cleansing” of communities that destroys families and their homes. Elvir, and his fifteen-year-old son Amir, are sent to the Omarska concentration camp where torture and death haunt them daily. With a world that turns a blind eye, both suffer physically, psychologically, and spiritually. Yet they must rely upon each other if they are to survive. Hajra, Elvir's wife, along with their two younger children, Halima and Danis, are imprisoned in another camp called Trnopolje. They, too, must survive the atrocities that visit them including rape and witnessing beatings and murder. Hajra and the children encounter Elvir's brother, Tarik, who has been transferred to Trnopolje from another camp, only to see him disappear a short time later. As they all have learned too well in the camps, many disappear never to return. The Kovacevic's eventually leave the camps and reconnect with Tarik's wife, Merjem, who is unable to accept the possibility of the loss of her husband. The families' trajectories lead them to journey together as they face unforeseen obstacles that must be overcome if they are to find true freedom from the trauma that continues to inform their decisions. As refugees, they move to Germany and then to America seeking to rediscover meaning in their lives after surviving genocide, grieving their losses, and to place roots in their new home. https://static.wixstatic.com/media/b894ac_4b2e0b63d7174639925be6f0df5b868d~mv2.jpg/v1/fill/w_746,h_1138,al_c,q_85,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01/Copy%20of%20Sher%20-%20Cover%20Project%20front%20jpg.webp For more information on Balkan Mama Therapy, as mentioned by Jordan Steven Sher in this episode, please visit: https://www.selmabacevac.com/.

Full Text of ReadingsSaturday of the Twenty-ninth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 478All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint John of CapistranoIt has been said the Christian saints are the world's greatest optimists. Not blind to the existence and consequences of evil, they base their confidence on the power of Christ's redemption. The power of conversion through Christ extends not only to sinful people but also to calamitous events. Imagine being born in the 14th century. One-third of the population and nearly 40 percent of the clergy were wiped out by the bubonic plague. The Western Schism split the Church with two or three claimants to the Holy See at one time. England and France were at war. The city-states of Italy were constantly in conflict. No wonder that gloom dominated the spirit of the culture and the times. John Capistrano was born in 1386. His education was thorough. His talents and success were great. When he was 26 he was made governor of Perugia. Imprisoned after a battle against the Malatestas, he resolved to change his way of life completely. At the age of 30 he entered the Franciscan novitiate and was ordained a priest four years later. John's preaching attracted great throngs at a time of religious apathy and confusion. He and 12 Franciscan brethren were received in the countries of central Europe as angels of God. They were instrumental in reviving a dying faith and devotion. The Franciscan Order itself was in turmoil over the interpretation and observance of the Rule of St. Francis. Through John's tireless efforts and his expertise in law, the heretical Fraticelli were suppressed and the “Spirituals” were freed from interference in their stricter observance. John of Capistrano helped bring about a brief reunion with the Greek and Armenian Churches. When the Turks captured Constantinople in 1453, John was commissioned to preach a crusade for the defense of Europe. Gaining little response in Bavaria and Austria, he decided to concentrate his efforts in Hungary. He led the army to Belgrade. Under the great General John Hunyadi, they gained an overwhelming victory, and the siege of Belgrade was lifted. Worn out by his superhuman efforts, Capistrano was an easy prey to an infection after the battle. He died on October 23, 1456. Reflection John Hofer, a biographer of John Capistrano, recalls a Brussels organization named after the saint. Seeking to solve life problems in a fully Christian spirit, its motto was: “Initiative, Organization, Activity.” These three words characterized John's life. He was not one to sit around. His deep Christian optimism drove him to battle problems at all levels with the confidence engendered by a deep faith in Christ.

Kelefa Sanneh was born in England, and lived in Ghana and Scotland before moving with his parents to the United States in the early 1980s. He was a pop music critic at the New York Times from 2000-2008, and has been a staff writer at the New Yorker since then. His first book, just released on Penguin, is called Major Labels: A History of Popular Music in Seven Genres. The book refracts the entire history of popular music over the past fifty years through the big genres that have defined and dominated it—rock, R&B, country, punk, hip-hop, dance music, and pop—as an art form (actually, a bunch of art forms), as a cultural and economic force, and as a tool that we use to build our identities. Sanneh shows how these genres have been defined by the tension between mainstream and outsider, between authenticity and phoniness, between good and bad, right and wrong. Throughout, race is a powerful touchstone: just as there have always been Black audiences and white audiences, with more or less overlap depending on the moment, there has been Black music and white music, constantly mixing and separating. Sanneh debunks cherished myths, reappraises beloved heroes, and upends familiar ideas of musical greatness, arguing that sometimes, the best popular music isn't transcendent. Songs express our grudges as well as our hopes, and they are motivated by greed as well as idealism; music is a powerful tool for human connection, but also for human antagonism. This is a book about the music everyone loves, the music everyone hates, and the decades-long argument over which is which. Franz Nicolay is a musician and writer living in New York's Hudson Valley. His first book, The Humorless Ladies of Border Control: Touring the Punk Underground from Belgrade to Ulaanbaatar, was named a "Season's Best Travel Book" by The New York Times.

Kelefa Sanneh was born in England, and lived in Ghana and Scotland before moving with his parents to the United States in the early 1980s. He was a pop music critic at the New York Times from 2000-2008, and has been a staff writer at the New Yorker since then. His first book, just released on Penguin, is called Major Labels: A History of Popular Music in Seven Genres. The book refracts the entire history of popular music over the past fifty years through the big genres that have defined and dominated it—rock, R&B, country, punk, hip-hop, dance music, and pop—as an art form (actually, a bunch of art forms), as a cultural and economic force, and as a tool that we use to build our identities. Sanneh shows how these genres have been defined by the tension between mainstream and outsider, between authenticity and phoniness, between good and bad, right and wrong. Throughout, race is a powerful touchstone: just as there have always been Black audiences and white audiences, with more or less overlap depending on the moment, there has been Black music and white music, constantly mixing and separating.

Territoriales, économiques ou encore culturelles,  les frontières sont polymorphes. Profondément remodelées depuis l'éclatement de l'Union Soviétique elles sont encore souvent sous tension : Caucase, Biélorussie, Ukraine, Balkans, migrations...  Et celles de l'Union européenne bougent, elles aussi. La plus récente frontière de l'Europe est la frontière douanière en mer d'Irlande. Conséquence du Brexit, elle fait l'objet d'un bras-de-fer entre Londres et Bruxelles. Les 27 viennent de proposer d'alléger les contrôles, mais les propositions ne satisfont pas les Britanniques. Symboliquement érigée au début de l'année pour garantir le contrôle des marchandises qui entrent et sortent de l'Union européenne, elle implique - par définition -  des contrôles douaniers au sein même du Royaume-Uni, entre la Grande-Bretagne et l'Irlande du Nord. Et la pilule passe mal, notre correspondante Emeline Vin à Dublin nous explique pourquoi. L'Europe se hérisse de murs et de barrières, à la frontière entre la Grèce et la Turquie, ou à celle de la Hongrie, dès 2015, pour arrêter les réfugiés. Aujourd'hui, la Lituanie s'apprête à s'isoler de la Biélorussie, en construisant un mur qui devrait être achevé au printemps prochain (2022). Objectif là encore : empêcher l'arrivée de migrants que le gouvernement d'Alexandre Loukachenko instrumentalise en réplique aux sanctions européennes. En l'espace de quelques semaines cet été, plus de 4 000 personnes, irakiennes en majorité, étaient arrivées en Lituanie. C'est un reportage de Marielle Vitureau. L'Atlas des frontières, co-écrit par Frédéric Encel et Hugo Billard, vient de paraître aux éditions Autrement. Il passe en revue avec une foule d'illustration les frontières de la planète, frontières multiformes et en perpétuelle évolution... Sous-titré «Retour des fronts, essor des murs», l'ouvrage revient sur les spécificités de l'Europe, notamment sur la question des migrations et sur celle des euro-régions. On en parle avec Hugo Billard, co-auteur et professeur d'histoire géographie. Les Balkans occidentaux et les pays de l'ex-Yougoslavie vivent encore de fortes tensions territoriales et culturelles. Treize ans après la proclamation de son indépendance, le Kosovo est toujours divisé, et les autorités de Pristina n'ont que très peu d'influence sur la zone serbe du nord de la ville de Mitrovica, zone toujours sous contrôle de Belgrade. Début octobre 2021, les tensions sont montées au point que Mitrovica-Nord a été coupée du reste du Kosovo par des barricades. Les explications de notre correspondant Laurent Geslin. Sortir en Europe… à Amsterdam.  Longtemps, l'art du portrait a permis aux aristocrates et citoyens fortunés d'immortaliser leur visage en peinture... Dans l'exposition «Ne m'oublie pas», le Rijksmuseum met en lumière les portraits de la Renaissance. Parmi la centaine de tableaux présentés, ceux de deux hommes d'origine africaine, du XVIème siècle. Il s'agit des premiers portraits d'hommes noirs, et ce choix est un nouveau signe de la volonté du musée d'aborder le passé colonial des Pays-Bas. Par Anne Leray.

Le pays retourne aux urnes ce dimanche 17 octobre pour des élections municipales, premier test politique pour le Premier ministre réformateur Albin Kurti élu en février dernier. Mais le secteur serbe du nord du pays s'enfonce dans un nouveau cycle de violence. En septembre, c'est la querelle des plaques d'immatriculation qui a embrasé le secteur serbe du nord du Kosovo. En effet, alors que Belgrade refusait de laisser passer les voitures immatriculées « RKS », pour « République du Kosovo », Pristina a voulu introduire un « principe de réciprocité », en interdisant les immatriculations serbes. Un compromis provisoire a été trouvé : les insignes nationaux sont désormais recouverts de stickers blancs. Mercredi toutefois, une opération anti-criminalité de la police du Kosovo a remis le feu aux poudres à Mitrovica, provoquant de violents affrontements avec la population locale.  Miodrag Milicevic, de l'ONG Activ, l'une des rares à promouvoir le dialogue inter-communautaire, explique le sentiment d'exaspération qui monte chez les Serbes : « Beaucoup de frustrations s'étaient déjà accumulées après le conflit sur les plaques d'immatriculation. Les gens ne veulent pas avoir honte d'afficher les symboles de l'État auquel ils estiment appartenir. » À court terme, il est possible qu'en montrant les muscles dans les zones serbes, le Premier ministre réformateur Albin Kurti, triomphalement élu en février dernier, espère améliorer les positions de son parti en vue des élections de dimanche. Localement, la montée des tensions va surtout donner de l'eau au moulin de la Lista Srpska, le parti des Serbes du Kosovo, totalement téléguidé depuis Belgrade. « Nous rejetons les Serbes qui pourraient être intéressés par mieux s'intégrer dans notre société » Et beaucoup s'interrogent sur la stratégie d'Albin Kurti, comme Visar Ymeri, le directeur de l'Institut Musine Kokalari, un think tank social-démocrate de Pristina. « Je pense que la façon dont Albin Kurti gère la question du Nord est potentiellement très dangereuse, parce que le gouvernement du Kosovo ne présente aux citoyens du Nord que l'une de ses facettes, et ce sont des actions de police. Avec cette façon de gérer le Nord, nous rejetons les Serbes qui pourraient être intéressés par mieux s'intégrer dans notre société. Notre Premier ministre parle d'une société basée sur la citoyenneté, mais il agit d'une façon différente. » Josepp Borrel, le chef de la diplomatie européenne, a qualifié le nouvel envoi de la police spéciale dans le nord du Kosovo d'action « unilatérale », tandis que Belgrade s'empressait de dénoncer les derniers agissements de Pristina. Le président Vucic a ainsi répété qu'il était prêt à défendre les Serbes du Kosovo « par tous les moyens ». Le « dialogue » qui doit bien reprendre d'une manière ou d'une autre entre les deux pays semble donc fort mal parti

A few days ago, Minal Jadeja gave us the challenge of selling IKEA to architects. We assumed that this was an issue for IKEA. We didn't have research to work with. But, over 24 hours, we landed on a strategy–we thought we could reframe IKEA and its instructions as a trigger for architects to think bigger. You can see it here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CUvWZ42pfOc/ Ana Škorić disagreed with some of our thinking. Ana is an architect who works in marketing.

This past year has seen an onslaught of disruptions that call into question our ability to coexist with our environment. The devastating effects of climate change have arrived, and show no signs of abating. Flash flooding has swept across China and Northern Europe. The Eastern United States has been inundated by hurricanes of historic size. Record breaking heat waves and wildfires have decimated large swaths of Western North America. And a global pandemic continues to rage on. All of this begs the question, must we look elsewhere in our universe to ensure the survival of humanity? A growing movement of astrophysicists, biologists, and billionaire space enthusiasts believes our salvation does indeed lie offplanet. Supporters of this movement argue that we are on the cusp of technology that puts this possibility within reach, and that exploration and settlement to deal with issues of environmental instability and scarcity is nothing new. Settling the reachable regions of our universe is merely an extension of this age-old trend. But detractors of the plans to settle space dismiss it as an immeasurably expensive fever dream. In their minds, it would be far more prudent to invest our time and resources into fixing the problems here on Earth, the only known planet to host life. Beyond the massive technological advancements required, there are simply far too many unknowns about how and where life originated to assume it can be simply transported through the cosmos. Arguing for the motion is Milan Cirkovic, Research Professor at the Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade and author of Global Catastrophic Risks. Arguing against the motion is Lord Martin Rees, Lord Martin Rees Astronomer Royal, former President of The Royal Society. He is the author of On the Future whose updated paperback edition is due out in October, and The End of Astronauts due out in March of 2022. Milan Cirkovic: “There are many human achievements which, almost by definition, could never be realized if humanity remains bound to Earth.” Lord Martin Rees: “It is a dangerous delusion to think that we could escape the Earth's problems by going to Mars."

How does emigration affect those left behind? The fall of Yugoslavia in the 1990s led citizens to look for a better, more stable life elsewhere. For the older generations, however, this wasn't an option. In this powerful and moving work, Ivana Bajic-Hajdukovic reveals the impact that waves of emigration from Serbia had on family relationships and, in particular, on elderly mothers who stayed. With nowhere to go, and any savings given to their children to help establish new lives, these seniors faced the crumbling country, waves of refugees from Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, NATO bombing, the failing economy, and the trial and ouster of Slobodan Milosevic. Can You Run Away from Sorrow?: Mothers Left Behind in 1990s Belgrade (Indiana UP, 2020) poignantly depicts the intimacy of family relationships sustained through these turbulent times in Serbia and through the next generation's search for a new life. Bajic-Hajdukovic explores transformations in family intimacy during everyday life practices-in people's homes, in their food and cooking practices, in their childcare, and even in remittances and the exchange of gifts. "Can You Run Away from Sorrow?" illustrates not only the tremendous sacrifice of parents, but also their profound sense of loss-of their families, their country, their stability and dignity, and most importantly, of their own identity and hope for what they thought their future would be. Anna Domdey, M.A., studied Cultural Anthropology and Gender Studies at the University of Goettingen and is currently doing professional training in the field of museology, but she still likes to engage with compelling anthropological research.
