THREAD-"How could genocidal events a quarter-century ago have any relevance to America today? That is where we are. That is what we have become." interc.pt/2ZLxvcK by @maassp
"I can’t quite believe that I am writing this line and this story, but much of what I saw at those Balkan camps in the 1990s is relevant to what’s happening now in America."
"Tours of detention camps are public relations tricks; governments do their best to make sure journalists don’t actually visit the exact places where crimes occurred."
"It can be far easier for detainees to write something down and surreptitiously hand it to a journalist than to take the more intrusive route of talking to you.
"I wish I'd been armed with pencils and pieces of paper and handed them out as discreetly as possible to prisoners who indicated any inclination to write notes, or just left these things in a corner for any prisoner to write a message that might later be given to other visitors."
"The truth emerged from later interviews that journalists and investigators conducted with survivors who were able to speak freely in safe locations, usually refugee camps.
"Tracking down these survivors and taking the time to hear their grim truths was hard work, but it made the difference. Find the families who were kept in abusive conditions at the CBP camps. They know what happened."
