Received: April 2011

PCRC’s Bosnian rescuer Mina Jahić gained the attention of former U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, who formally recognized Mina during the 60th anniversary of the 1951 Convention Related to the Status of Refugees for saving the life of fellow Bosnian Ferid Spahić in 1994 during the Bosnian genocide. Mina’s story was first uncovered by our PCRC’s President, Velma Šarić, and remains a central component of PCRC’s Ordinary Heroes Peacebuilding Program.
