Arizona Psychiatrist Draws From Experience As Bosnian Refugee To Help Patients
Some Bosnian refugees here in Phoenix lost relatives in Srebrenica. Members of the Bosnian Muslim and Bosniak community in Phoenix will gather on Saturday to remember the 20th anniversary.
Esad Boskailo will be there — he was a doctor in Bosnia, who spent a year helping civilians and soldiers on the front lines in the war.
After Boskailo was captured, he spent about a year in six different concentration camps.
He’s now an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Arizona and co-author of the book, “Wounded I Am More Awake: Finding Meaning after Terror.”
The "Walk to Remember" will begin at 8:30 a.m. in downtown Phoenix, starting at Civic State Park to Burton Barr Public Library. A program will begin at the library at 10 a.m.
