    Many years ago, when I was very young and very intense about my belief that the world was capable of being saved, I went to a talk at the 92nd Street Y by some writer I admired I can t remember who it was, now What I do remember is that the writer used the talk to speak passionately and eloquently about the then recent 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto upr...

    My across the street neighbor is from Sarajevo One time we got to chatting while our kids played and she told me the story of how she emigrated to America as a teenager during the wartime siege It involved the promise of a scholarship, a tunnel under the airport and a crazy bus ride into Croatia At the time, even as I recognized that hers was an amazing journey, I only vaguely understood the context of it I hadn t yet read Balkan Ghosts, so my frame of reference for 1990s Bos...

    Besieged is a book about life in war time Sarajevo wrote by Barbara Demick in 1996 after spending some time there at various intervals between 1992 and 1995 as the correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer.The reason why this stuff has recently been re published is the success recently gained by Nothing to Envy the brilliant book by Mrs Demick about life under the North Korean communist regime.There is, therefore, a gap of almost 15 years andthan 5 thousand miles between what Barbara Besieged is a book about life in war time Sarajevo wrote by Barbara Demick in 1996 after spending some time there at various intervals between 1992 and 1995 as the correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer.The reason why this stuff has recently been re published is the success recently gained by Nothing to Envy the brilliant book by Mrs Demick about life under the North Korean communist regime.There is, therefore, a gap of almost 15 years andthan 5 thousand miles between what Barbara Demick wrote about Sarajevo in the 1990s and Pyongyang nowadays Not to mention all the rest.The book formerly known as Logavina Street and now published under the title of Besieged with the addition of a slight editing and two extra chapters at the end is good but far from being excellent as Nothing to Envy is.On the one hand, Mrs Demick was younger then and less experienced in dealing with the personal stories of the people she wrote about On the other hand, wha...

    I m fascinated and horrified by the Bosnian war, and especially the siege of Sarajevo It s almost incomprehensible that brutal siege took place in the 1990 s under the watchful eye of the UN and NATO and western governments I ve read fictional accounts of the conflict, but this is the first non fiction account I ve read Barbara Demick encapsulates the brutality of the Sarajevo siege by concentrating on one street in Sarajevo She tells the story of the families along that street, and it is a I m fascinated and horrified by the Bosnian war, and especially the siege of Saraj...

    My feeling is mixed reading the book I know that life in the Seige of Sarajevo in the 90 s was difficult but it turned out to be unimaginably harsh I have no idea that people struggled for years to live a normal life in the most absurd circumstances no electricity, no gas, no security and no nothing It was naive of me to think that no one would stay in the centre of the war zone but the truth was most did not leave Sarajevo, a place where they call Home The news coverage and TV footages My feeling is mixed reading the book I know that life in the Seige of Sarajevo in the 90 s was difficult but it turned out to be unimaginably harsh I have no idea that people struggled for years to live a normal life in the most absurd circumstances no electricity, no gas, no security and no nothing It was naive of me to think that no one would stay in the centre of the war zone but the truth was most did not leave Sarajevo, a place where they call Home The news coverage and TV footages of the seige are nothing comparable to the impacts the book gave me I might have been shocked to see those images from TV two decades ago but I am horrified to find out the details from the book It vividly puts the war that happened years ago and hundred thousands of miles away right in front of me Reading the book is like standing in the middle of the Sniper Alleys I keep asking myself how these Bosnians could survive the deprivation, cold winters, all the sh...

    I remember the events of Sarajevo, but if I ever knew the causes, I had forgotten them Barbara Demick, at the time a young foreign correspondent living and reporting from Sarajevo throughout its civil war, beautifully captures both the spirit of the people of Sarajevo and the nightmare they endured.For centuries a city where religions coexisted peacefully 30% of marriages were of mixed religious backgrounds , fashionable and affluent Sarajevo became a war zone when Serbian nationalists besiege I remember the events of S...

    There is just something so incredibly poignant and heartbreaking when one reads about real families in a war zone trying to keep living somewhat normal lives in very unnormal and dangerous circumstances This book really brought the Bosnian Serbian conflict home to me When people are forced to live in the backrooms or inner rooms of their homes, trying to keep their families safe and healthy, with very little in the way of food or medical care, work their gardens while being randomly bombed or There is just something so incredibly poignant and heartbreaking when one reads about real families in a war zone trying to keep living somewhat normal lives in very unnormal and dangerous circumstances This book really brought the Bosnian Serbian conflict home to me When people are forced to live in the backrooms or inner rooms of their homes, trying to keep their families safe and healthy, with very little in...
