Stari Most

Old Bridge of Mostar (Stari Most). Destroyed by the Croat Defence Council during the Bosnian War (1992-1995). It was reconstructed in 2004, however tens of thousands of innocent Bosnians killed by Serbian and Croatian forces remain dead. European countries who let the tragedy go on for 3 years in the middle of Europe, did almost nothing to stop the bloodshed until the NATO intervention.

Such a human tragedy occurring in the heart of the "developed" world is shocking. I think as important as a desire for peace is a desire for justice. The two do not always co-exist easily. At any rate, an excellent photo.

Oh my god...such a powerful image. I was recently in a play where I portrayed Zlata Filipovic...I'm trying to learn more about the Bosnian War and such.

Thank you :hug:
Must be a very difficult role in a difficult play. I read her diary.

I'm reading the entirety of her diary now, I only performed five pages. It was a difficult part since I had to take the voice of a girl younger than I, and also show how she matured throughout the war. A daunting task, but educating.

A beautiful image and a sad but true telling of one of our western civilization's more shameful moments (or in this case years).
