In 1999 the ‘ethnic cleansing’ forces of Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic sweep into Kosovo. Television screens worldwide show haunted figures huddled behind barbed wire fences and bodies heaped in ditches. Craig Jurisevic, recalling his grandfather’s ordeal in a Nazi concentration camp, resolves to honour his memory by offering his skills as a surgeon to the victims of the conflict. Blood on My Hands, co-written with award-winning author Robert Hillman, tells a story of terrible suffering, of extraordinary heroism, and of the savagery that lies coiled in the human heart.
