20 Years After:
Two Trips to Sarajevo

Last year Minka Prolic, in whose home I stayed during wartime visits to Sarajevo, passed away.

Here then is some old journalism — Two Trips to Sarajevo — about private life in the city under siege, focused on Minka, her husband Hazim, their son Haris, and their extended family.

Comments about the stories and photos may be placed here below.

Many photos — enriched with comments from Sarajevans — may also be found on my Facebook page, in an album open to the public, whether Fbook members or no. Search there for William Ney, New York, N.Y., with education refs at CUNY Graduate School and St John’s College.

    NO NEED to comment about blank links in the text.

    I am still working thru the list, filling them.

    Illuminating and insightful. A history revisited at an intimate level.
