Remembering Srebrenica Scotland – In Conversation with Robert McNeil MBE
Live from St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, Sunday 30th October 2022
Robert McNeil MBE will speak about his time as a forensic technician in Bosnia and his recently-published memoirs of that time, Grave Faces.
Former Remembering Srebrenica Scotland (RSS) Vice Chair and Ambassador for Remembering Srebrenica UK, Robert McNeil MBE spent several years as an Anatomical Pathology Technologist, as part of an International Forensic team tasked with providing physical and scientific evidence of crimes against humanity and genocide in war zones in the Balkans from 1996 to 2002.
Along with creating an extensive collection of paintings of that time which have been exhibited in galleries across the UK, the Scottish & Welsh Parliaments, and are on permanent display in the St Mungo Museum, Robert has now written a book about his experiences, ‘Grave Faces’. His memoir is unique in that it’s the first book written by an experienced technician who was involved in what has emerged as the most extensive forensic investigation in history.
Robert will be in conversation with RSS trustee, Marsaili Fraser, who also lived and worked in Bosnia for over ten years after the war. She was a political advisor in the Office of the High Representative during Paddy Ashdown’s mandate and later worked for the European Union’s Special Representative in both Mostar and Sarajevo between 2013 and 2016.
Robert McNeil’s book will be available (for cash only) at the event at a cost of £30, or can be purchased online by clicking here.
