These days mark the twentieth anniversary of the beginning of the Bosnian war. A key early moment was the brutal assault on the Muslim population of the northeastern town of Bijeljina.
On the Oxford University Press blog is an opinion piece on this, and its relationship to the themes of Bosnia Remade.
Here’s a photo, featuring Carl and Ramajana, of the stall described in the piece.
And some photos I took of the location of the central square mosque in July 2002 (featuring Carl) and the same space three years later on 3 July 2005.
And a link to an excellent Human Rights report on the town: Unfinished Business: Return of Displaced Persons and Other Human Rights Issues which was released in May 2000. It features an account of the ethnic cleansing of the town.
