      "Burning Books" - a 50-minute documentary film by Knut Jorfald, made
      to mark the 10th anniversary of the burning of Bosnia's National Library
      in Aug. 1992 has been shown by IKON on Dutch television (soundtrack in
      Dutch, English and Bosnian; a full English version the documentary is also
      available). It is now online (thanks to Frank Tiggelaar of Domovina Net)
      and can be seen at: http://www.domovina.net/burning_books.ram

      The documentary includes dramatic footage of the library on fire. Excerpts
      from the film were shown on 8 July in court at the UN war crimes tribunal,
      as part of the trial of Slobodan Milosevic on charges of crimes against
      humanity and genocide.
