Muslim Bosniak woman Nusreta Sivac arrives for work at a Pension Fund in Sanski Most, 260 kms west of Sarajevo on Tuesday, March 5, 2013. Sivac, a former judge, was one of thousands of women who had been raped during Bosnia’s 1992-95 war, as part of a systematic Bosnian Serb rape campaign. Sivac was held and molested at the notorious Serb-run camp Omarska in her native city of Prijedor. After the war, Sivac begun collecting testimonies of other rape victims with a view to making a UN war crimes court in The Hague recognize it as a war crime. Today, largely because of Sivac, people are regularly prosecuted for wartime sexual violence. She returned to Prijedor but could not find work in the now Serb-dominated city where crimes against non-Serbs are still largely denied despite overwhelming evidence collected and made public after the war. According to the UN, between 20,000 to 50,000 Bosnian women were raped, many in special rape camps , during the war that was fought between the new country's Serbs, Croats and Bosniaks.
