After publication of this article in New Politics, Summer 2002, and the "Debate" in New Politics, Winter 2003, I learned about the extensive study of the images of atrocity at the Trnopolje camp in the Prijedor region of Bosnia by professor David Campbell, "Atrocity, memory, photography: imaging the concentration camps of Bosnia -- the case of ITN versus Living Marxism," Part 1, Journal of Human Rights, Vol. I, No. 1 (March 2002), 1-33; and Part 2, Journal of Human Rights, Vol. 1, No. 2 (June 2002), 143-172.  These are available on the web at: http://www.david-campbell.org/photography/atrocity-and-memory

In November 2007 the St. Louis Holocaust Museum opened an exhibit, "Prijedor: Lives from the Bosnian Genocide," co-sponsored by the Prijedor Municipality Citizens Association, one community among the 50,000 Bosnian refugees now living in the St. Louis area. The exhibit ran through May 2008. The Guardian correspondent Ed Vulliamy gave the keynote address at the opening; an NPR interview with Vulliamy can be heard at: http://publicbroadcasting.net/kwmu/news.newsmain? action=article&ARTICLE_ID=1186123
