Mostar – Don’t Forget 93   Leave a comment







I traveled for about 2 weeks in Croatia and Bosnia. I will, probably, make other postings about this interesting experience.  Staying in Mostar (Bosnia) it is hard not to notice signs with “Don’t forget 93” or more elaborate “Don’t forget but forgive forever”.  I am not going to argue how meaningful this sentiment in general and in Islamic culture particular but more interesting question is – what is audience? I should say that we did not have much problem with English in Bosnia (knowing Russian helps somewhat) but English is not native language there. So the audience is Americans and may be tourists in general.  They should not forget blood poured in Bosnian land.  Insinuation is that Bosnians are not participated in this bloodshed and purely innocent victims of outside power.

Bosnians should not forget this.  Bosnians should remember that they have as much blood on their hands as Croats and Serbs have.
