Ethnicity still divides Bosnia, threatening its fragile peace

A fragile peace still hangs in Bosnia and Herzegovina where an estimated 100,000 people were killed and another 2 million displaced during the ethnic fighting 14 years ago.

Special correspondent Kira Kay and producer Jason Maloney of the Bureau for International Reporting recently traveled to Sarejevo to report on how one ethnically-partitioned school mirrors the country’s struggles with ethnic identity today. The history and geography books have yet to teach students about the last 20 years of their country’s history. Both local and foreign analysts have expressed fear of future conflict.
