In 1971 Bangladesh was a victim of war crimes perpetrated by an occupying foreign military and local collaborators. Systemically, women were brutally raped and impregnated; some were aborted, but many were born and adopted by foreigners. We forgot all the sacrifices to achieve a country and a flag for our identity. Our memories are confused by the politics, religion, and aggression of troubling historical discourses. Many Bangladeshis knowingly or unknowingly carry the wound of that unrecognized genocide; this is the time to revisit the forgotten history of our liberation war and the forgotten memories of the children of the war.
