Twenty years ago, Sarajevo burned. From 1992 to 1995, the Bosnian capital endured one of the worst sieges of modern warfare.
This year marks the twentieth anniversary of other significant events from the Bosnian war, as well. In 1993, the United Nations declared a number of “safe areas,” including the town of Srebrenica. Two years later, thousands of Muslim men and boys died at Srebrenica in the worst mass killing in Europe since World War II. The siege of the city of Mostar, as well as mass murder in the Lašva Valley, both took place in 1993.
