WAR HOSPITAL is a young physician-reporter's chronicles of the experiences of doctors and nurses trapped in besieged Srebrenica, Bosnia, illuminating the passions, challenges, tragedies, and agonizing moral quandaries of practicing medicine in a war zone.
In April 1992, a handful of young physicians, not one of them a surgeon, was trapped along with 50,000 men, women, and children in the embattled enclave of Srebrenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina. There, in a town whose tragedy still reverberates, the physicians faced
the most intense professional, ethical, and personal predicaments of their lives. WAR HOSPITAL is their story, and that of those who want to help them. More information is available at www.warhospital.net.
