Description - Rape Warfare by Beverly Allen

"Every time I meet another woman who has survived, or who is helping the survivors, or who is struggling to articulate the horror the survivors and the dead have suffered and to prevent its recurrence, my own anger and grave distress turns toward hope." With these words, author Beverly Allen gives an indication of the shocking impact on the international community of a recent wartime phenomenon, namely the "military policy of rape for the purpose of genocide", implemented by Serbian soldiers in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia during the recent conflict in the region. This text documents the existence of rape/death camps in which women were detained and raped repeatedly, often with the goal of impregnating them or as a form of torture before death. The author faces the dilemma of communicating her findings without reinforcing the damage that has been caused by these atrocities. The study analyzes the information gathered by the author about genocidal rape and concludes with an impassioned argument for the bringing to trial of the perpetrators of this war crime.
