Land of the Demons

  • 1993 ----- color ----- 47 min ----- vhs
  • (ABC News Special: Peter Jennings Reporting) "The demons of rage and hatred have been set loose in Europe once again, and there is danger here for the rest of the world." For years Yugoslavia was controlled by the "Iron Fist" of communism. Now with its fall, groups which "have distrusted each other for centuries have now come to hate each other and now they are killing each other." Serbs, Croats and Bosnians are all driven by territorial ambition and religious hatred. Each group has its own political and religious allies. While all agree that the conflict poses serious moral questions and that it is a European problem, the "Europeans go on wringing their hands."
