The Balkan's war has been one of the most cruel and ferocious that we
can remember. Genocides, tortures, rapes and brutal murders who didn't
save any human kind.
The aim of this work is to explore the actual consequences of the
Bosnian conflict between 1992 - 1995. Portraying the war scars over
people and infrastructures and showing the discomfort who's still
pending over this country.
The ICMP (International Commission on Missing Persons) still works to
identify missing persons. In Tuzla, a hundred kilometers far from
Sarajevo, there are laboratories where bone parts and personal
belongings found in mass graves are collected and identified.
So far, about 10.000 people are still missing.
The war refugees, who had been assured the right to a home, are still
forced to live in containers or partially destroyed buildings. the city
of Srebrenica, sadly famous for the 1995's massacre of 8000 Bosnian
Muslims by the General Mladic's troops, is only one of the many places
where the war consequences are clearly evident. The refugee camp of
"Baratova" and the dilapidated Hotel Domavia still hosts tens of
families in critical conditions. UNHCR estimate 165000 (Jan 2011)
persons are still internally displaced.
New generations hope to enter, one day, in the European Union, but peace
still seems fragile and politicians do not seem to have any will to
give up their power for a strong and united country.
