... so before I go, I wanted to post a couple of images from Sarajevo.
Why Sarajevo, because one of Ed's colleagues gave me "The Cellist of Sarajevo" to read and it brought memories of these two buildings. Both were destroyed early in the war to erase the memory of an independent country.
Below is the Sarajevo Library. It has been rebuilt and is used as City Hall. There are no books left, they all burned. They Serbian forces shelled the buildng and then opened sniper fire on the fireman that came to put out the blaze. The City Hall / Library is at the far end of Old Town, down in the valley while the snippers and mortars were in the hills around them.
