The best film made about Sarajevo in the war
9 November 2013 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

As a Sarajevan who did not spend time in Sarajevo during the war, but heard many stories about how it went during the war. Everyone told me this is the most accurate film made about Sarajevo in the war. So please watch it! And try to imagine how would you feel in the situation like that. Let us hope no one would ever be in the situation like that in Europe ever again! There is a memorial for the children of Sarajevo killed in war in the central park in Sarajevo.

Sarajevo did not deserve that! It is an Winter Olympic City, and as like that should of deserved better, but geopolitical faith intervened...
