The public exhibit, continuing through Monday, April 7, tells the story of genocide in the Bosnian city of Prijedor between 1992 and 1995. Thirty-two panels and a 40-minute video with original photographs and testimony from survivors are part of the exhibit. The Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission serves as sponsor.
