Éclats de mémoire (fragments of memory) – Memories of ICRC employees in the former Yugoslavia, 1991-2001
14-10-2010 Publication Ref. 4027 Jean-François Berger
The voices in Fragments of Memory are those of "delegation employees" from the former Yugoslavia who were working for the ICRC during the dark decade of the conflict, from 1991 to 2001. Recruited locally, they carry out a multitude of tasks and play a key role in humanitarian work, a role that is often eclipsed by that of their superiors, the expatriate staff. Yet humanitarian work would be impossible without them.
