Sarajevo Roses



Are you thinking of flower?
Which color?
Which size?
What’s your first thought?

Or maybe you watched a film by Roger M. Richards?
In this way, the secret is known. 

Sarajevo Roses are red, red like a blood which appeared on the street after mortal shell’s explosion.  Sarajevo Roses have shape of the flower, shape which was given by marks of the explosion.
Sarajevo Roses are painful memories, filled with red resin after the war. They are unavoidable part of history. According to the stories, they grew by the death and they were watered with the tears of those who survived…

Sarajevo Roses became very popular tourist attractions and… they have started to disappear…
Is it caused by renovation ? or maybe Bosnians want to keep their history for themselves?

  6. I remember watching and reading the news and crying. What a horrible, traumatic time for these people. I think it must be for them to decide how best to remember. Thank you for remembering and caring, Doronette.

  8. Very sad, yet somehow I wonder if it would be right to cover over them. Sometimes it is good to have reminders for the future generations. Otherwise the past is forgotten and along with the past, the lessons learned.

  9. I think it is not good to live in the past but to carry some of it with you so we don't forget.
