In the World

Writing from the War Zone

When Syrian President Bashar al-Assad cracked down brutally on protests during the Arab Spring of 2011, Janine di Giovanni, F16, was caught up in a different war. She was writing about Ratko Mladic, the Serbian general accused of leading a massacre that left 8,000 men and boys dead in 1995. Mladic was still at large, and di Giovanni, a veteran war correspondent, wanted people to remember him and the murders of which he was accused.
