2015 Finalist

Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction
for Tell It to the World: International Justice and the Secret Campaign to Hide Mass Murder in Kosovo

Jury Citation

“With clarity and precision, Eliott Behar peels back the layers of deceit, cover-up, and atrocity that surround the ethnic cleansing of predominantly Muslim Albanians perpetrated by Serbia in the province of Kosovo. Tell It to the World reads partly like a mystery novel and partly like a courtroom drama, while still providing a plea from the heart to reconsider how ideas of ‘justice’ and ‘injustice’ have been used to enflame hatreds and political violence from the former Yugoslavia to Rwanda. A powerful and important book.” – 2015 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction Jury (Stevie Cameron, Will Ferguson, and JJ Lee)
