I Came to Testify (Episode #101H)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 3, 2012 -- 10:00 PM

This episode tells the moving story of how a group of 16 women who had been imprisoned and raped by Serb-led forces in the Bosnian town of Foca broke history's great silence and stepped forward to take the witness stand in an international court of law.

Matt Damon, who narrates the film, has taped a behind-the-scenes-video talking about why the themes of this series matter to men, too.
