ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview with war correspondent Anne Nivat. According to Nivat, bravery in journalism means not to be scared of going back and back to the same place and trying to attract the public's attention to forgotten wars such as the war in Chechnya. Hence, journalists should have the will and the strength to pursue their goals even if they encounter threats and attacks.
