Postcards from the Grave

by Emir Suljagic
£12.99   paperback  Saqi Books (2005)

Postcards from the Grave by Emir Suljagic In May 1992, while Serb nationalist forces 'cleansed' the towns and villages of the Drina valley in eastern Bosnia of their formerly majority Muslim population - as part of Slobodan Milo'eviae's criminal attempt to carve an expanded Serbia from the successor states of the former Yugoslav federation - thousands of fleeing, desperate people converged on the small town of Srebrenica in search of refuge. For many of them this would prove to be a fatal decision. Serb forces besieged the town for three years, undeterred even when it was proclaimed a 'UN Safe Area'. As more and more refugees fled to Srebrenica from the surrounding villages conditions there became unbearable: near-starvation, daily death, degradation of civilized life. The victims themselves were caught up in the dialectic of violence.
 
Finally, after three years of agony, and as those sent to protect them stood by, Srebrenica was destroyed. In just a few days in July 1995 Bosnian Serb forces murdered over 7,000 people.
 
Against all odds Emir Suljagiae survived, while the lives of nearly every man he had ever known - and those of many women too - were wiped out. His haunted record of those terrible times offers a fitting monument to those who died.
