This Funzing Experience:
During seven baking summer weeks of 2014, the Israeli military conducted Operation Protective Edge in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, with the stated aim to stop rocket fire from Gaza into Israel. Over 2,000 Palestinians and around 70 Israelis died. Jonathan Tait-Harris, veteran UN war crimes investigator, was in the Gaza Strip in the midst of it and investigated several of the higher profile civilian deaths.

For 1425 days, the European and Olympic city Sarajevo was subjected to the longest siege of a capital city in the history of modern warfare. Tens of thousands of civilians died at the hands of Bosnian Serb forces. A former President, Radovan Karadžić, and Bosnian Serb generals, Stanislav Galić and Dragomir Milošević, were jailed for their command roles in the siege.

In 1998 and 1999 - war raged in Kosovo between Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) and the Serbian Army. NATO provided air support to the KLA ground forces. Thousands died and thousands more fled for their lives.

Jonathan will take you behind the scenes of his life as a UN War Crimes investigator, and give you an insight into some of the most controversial and disastrous conflicts of the 21st century.

Venue: JW3 - North Finchley

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
