Under Karadzic


After more than a decade on the run, former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic has finally been caught. He's now at The Hague and will likely face war crimes charges for his alleged role in the genocide of Bosnian Muslims in the early 1990s.

Kemal Pervanic was one of thousands of Muslims rounded up and sent to concentration camps during the genocide under Karadzic's rule. Kemal faced atrocious living conditions and the daily threat of being killed by his captors - many of whom were once his neighbors. He talks with guest host Aaron Henkin about surviving the camps and coming to terms with his fellow Bosnians' betrayal.


Peter Pohlhammer wrote in to tell us about his encounters with the great American baritone, William Warfield.  He tells Dick about the profound influence Warfield had on him, both musically and morally.
