Mostar and Sarajevo

It's beyond belief what happened here. Years of siege in cities much like any other in Europe. Bombed out buildings and shrapnel-scarred walls bear testimony to the horror. The apartment building below, in Mostar, became a bunker for the Bosnian forces while the Serbs took up a position on the other side of the street and the two shot at each for two years. Recently some of the residents have returned and refurbished their homes while the flats around them lie empty and ruined. The bottom photo is the The Martyrs' Memorial Cemetery in Sarajevo.
