Al-Jazeera Witness – The Unforgiven: A War Criminal’s Remorse (2018)

Al-Jazeera Witness 2018 The Unforgiven A War Criminals Remorse

A notorious war criminal searches for the prisoners he tortured during the Bosnian War to seek their forgiveness.

Esad Landzo was convicted of torture, war crimes and crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in 1998. He was a 19 year old prison guard at the Celebici camp in Konjic, Bosnia, notorious for abuse and torture of prisoners of war, many of whom were civilians, during the Bosnian War.

When he is released from prison in Finland after 10 years, Landzo is without a job and unable to get a visa from any other country. Desperate to rebuild a normal life, but tormented by the demons of his past, he begins an exhausting search for the men he tortured in an attempt to repent for the suffering he caused. A handful agree to listen, but their anger is palpable as they confront the horrific violence of their past.
