The Transatlantic Agency is excited to congratulate each of the nominees for the 2015 Hilary Weston Writer’s Trust Prize for Nonfiction, including Eliott Behar (TELL IT TO THE WORLD: INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE AND THE SECRET CAMPAIGN TO HIDE MASS MURDER IN KOSOVO, Dundurn Press).
Eliott Behar’s TELL IT TO THE WORLD follows the investigation by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia, into an event of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, in which, on April 5, 1999, local police in Serbia found a truck floating in the Danube River, which was filled with human bodies. Eliott Behar, a former war crimes prosecutor at the Tribunal, tells this story through the eyewitnesses, victims, and perpetrators who testified.

This award succeeds the Writers’ Trust Nonfiction Prize, which was established in 1997. Finalists receive $5,000 and the winner $60,000. The award will be presented on October 6th at a ceremony in Toronto. For further details, visit: http://www.writerstrust.com/
