Daily Wanderlust: Bullets and Bosnia

Written by on June 3, 2013 in Destinations - 4 Comments

From memorials like the one in Berlin to museums in Rwanda to simply a pock-marked building telling the tales of those who were silenced … images like these haunt my mind.

In Bosnia-Herzegovina, the remnants of war can be found in many places. Even in the heart of Sarajevo, there are stories to be told from the war … a shuttered national library … roses marking where people were killed … and bullet-riddled buildings.

This photo was snapped just outside of the Sarajevo airport near the Tunnel Museum which, during the war, served as a place for those fighting for the city to go underground and move supplies.

    Tragically beautiful. There are a lot of Bosnian refugees in St. Louis, they have created their own little town. I used to live on the edge of it. They are the friendliest people.

      They truly are so lovely. Every person I spoke to in Bosnia was kind and open. It is a country I plan on visiting again, for sure!

    whoa. that is a powerful photo. Have you heard of the book ‘War Hospital’? It’s about what happened in Srebenica. I heard the author give a talk about the atrocities there, in Bosnia Herzegovina, and it is so sad, yet necessary at the same time (because I had never learned much about the war there otherwise). thanks for this post.

      Thank you! I have not heard of the book but I am fascinated by what goes on in that region of the world.
