Kadir Habibović

Memoirist, Essayist and Historian.

Kadir Habibovic was born on May 25, 1964 in Srebrenica. He worked in the Srebrenica bauxite mine until the aggression on Bosnia and Herzegovina. He managed to reach the free territory on July 27, 1995, after the fall of Srebrenica. In his book, he describes the detailed shooting of a group of his fellow citizens that he survived from, and can now testify about the crimes committed there. Kadir left Bosnia and Herzegovina as a refugee and he now lives in northwestern Europe. His book is a result of his commitment to testify about an evil that the world must know about.
