Abstract: »By collecting and disseminating testimonies of both victims and perpetrators in that same war, Yasmin Saikia in Chapter 9 complicates the role of the person bringing the stories to a larger public. No longer solely associated with the victims, she must acknowledge a relationship with the perpetrator and inquire into the humanity of victim, perpetrator, and historian alike.« [Elizabeth D.
