It is called Killing Memory: Bosnia's Cultural Heritage and Its Destruction (Philadelphia: Community of Bosnia, 1994). This work is very important in the understanding of cultural genocide in Bosnia or anywhere else. Ethnic Cleansing/genocide involves the systematic annihilation of sacral monuments, libraries, museums, and all other traces that the targeted people ever existed.

Sa-Seher



This is a city.
In every sense of the word.
And at whatever time of the day, and from whatever elevation you look down at Sarajevo, you always, even if unconsciously, think the same: this is a city, a city wearing out and dying, and at the same time being born and transformed.

Ivo Andrić
