BILLY CRYSTAL FILLS THE SILENCE by Brianne Nord-Stewart
Produced for THE CURRENT - KnockKnock
"A few years ago I travelled alone to Croatia, Europe’s new tourist destination. The remnants of a war gone by seemed barely visible, unless you look, or ask. I hiked alongside 8,000 people for four days in 40+ degree heat in remembrance of the Srebrenica massacre, I got yelled at by infuriated Muslims for not covering my legs and arms near the cemetery, only to realize much later why — and feel the shame of touristic arrogance. I watched 614 bodies in anorexic coffins be put into the earth in one hour. Bodies that for 16 years had been unidentified after being uncovered in mass graves. I could only describe the country as “insane”. And yet it left me feeling like I was the crazy one, that in fact moving from talk of genocide to laughing at an American movie, and back again is the norm."
