Dear Ms. Kleinman,
I am writing to you in regards to the upcoming showing of “Ravna Gora” at E Street Cinema on December 11, 2013. As a survivor of the recent Bosnian war, I am very alarmed that the respectable E Street Cinema will be showing this particular series because it deems to revise historical facts and is being used to glorify the Chetnik movement in the former Yugoslavia. The Chetniks – a Serb nationalist movement – infamous for using terror tactics against the non-Serb populations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Balkans was responsible for the ethnic cleansing of the non-Serb population and the ideology of creating a “Greater Serbia.” This same ideology was adopted by Slobodan Milosevic, a war criminal and the former President of Serbia. The Balkan region saw a revival of the Chetnik movement during the 1990’s Yugoslav wars where in Bosnia and Herzegovina in particular, hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians were killed, over 20,000 women and girls systematically raped and over 2 million innocent civilians displaced. Currently, the region is still grappling with widespread genocide denial and this screening is an insult to the hundreds of thousands of innocent victims that lost their lives at the hands of such extremists and an insult to the survivors that to this day have not received proper justice.
As a survivor of genocide that occurred in Bosnia and Herzegovina and a proud citizen of the United States of America, I ask you to please cancel the showing of the series “Ravna Gora” at the E Street Cinema – a series that promotes nationalism, deems to revise history and glorifies the terrorist Chetnik movement.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
