Before April of 1992, Isak Gasi was a world-class athlete and community leader, content to live a quiet life with his wife and infant daughter in the Bosnian city of Brčko. He never could have dreamed that within just a few short years, he would come face to face with Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic and others indicted for war crimes, as a lead prosecution witness at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia. Isak Gasi’s Bosnian War experiences propelled him into a prominent and ongoing role as a witness for the prosecution at the Hague tribunal. He has lived in the United States for the past 16 years, working in a technical field. This event is part of the First Division Museum’s popular series, A Date With History. The monthly programs feature an evening of lively discussion with authors, panelists, historians, and special speakers. Free.
