Journalist David Binder
"SERBIA 1963 to 1990"
with DAVID BINDER
David Binder speaks about his experience of living and reporting from Serbia as a New York Times Journalist during this poignant and often, controversial time period.
Mr. Binder first became aware of Serbs and Serbia in 1941 through the Chicago Daily News.
The paper's foreign editor his father, Carroll Binder, had several correspondents stationed in the Balkans when the Nazis invaded Yugoslavia: Leland Stowe, George Weller and Leigh White - all of whom he met at his family's home in Highland Park. There he read for the first time in 1942 about the Chetniks with their heroic commander, Draza Mihailovich in Real Life Comics. 21 years later he was assigned by The New York Times to work as their Balkan correspondent stationed in Belgrade. There he began to live and work with Serbs. In those first years the Serbs were all but hidden under a blanket called Yugoslavia. Only in the 1990's did Serbian identity begin to re-emerge in the eyes of the world.
A "Q&A" will follow the evening's lecture.
