A 5-page paper double spaced on.
Slavenka Drakulic writes, “More than a decade after the beginning of the war in the
Balkans, it is essential that we understand that it is we, ordinary people and not some
madmen, who made it possible. We were the ones who one day stopped greeting our
neighbors of a different nationality, an act that the next day made possible the opening of
concentration camps. We did it to one another. Maybe this is a good reason for
considering whether it is too easy to put a hundred men on trial in the Hague” (194).
What argument is Drakulic making in these lines? Do you think she is correct? Make
your own argument in support of her claims, or against them.
