All about BHL
2000 to 2004
Bernard-Henri Lévy publishes Les Damnés de la guerre [The Damned of War], a series of reports in Angola, Sri-Lanka, Burundi, Columbia and Sudan, which appears in Le Monde, Italy’s Corriere della Sera, and Madrid’s El Mundo. These five reports will be collected into a book entitled Réflexions sur la Guerre, le Mal et la fin de l’Histoire [Reflections on War, Evil, and the End of History], published in September 2001. The original texts are accompanied by notes, character portraits, confidences, reflections on war and literature, and autobiographical vignettes. The book is hailed as one of the great politically engaged books of the beginning of the 21st century. The events of September 11th confer an even greater timeliness to his reflections. In keeping with the commitment he had made during the war in Bosnia to support Serbia when it finally emerged from its totalitarian nightmare, he produces Goran Morkovic’s film Serbie année zero.
