Contents: Early summer --
A hunter --
"In 1991, when Yugoslavia broke up ..." --
They took the men of military age --
When my mother was killed --
Messages --
In the refugee camp --
The thousands who disappeared --
In the morning --
Like an American movie star --
The systematic destruction --
Out of the shards of the ruined house --
Why do men confuse --
The drought --
The Serbs won't let the Red Cross in --
It was an open-air market --
There was a woman in Bihac --
"Towns we believe and die in" --
The young Muslim said to his uncle --
In Sarajevo there lived --
Who dares to speak of Beauty --
Our room --
In August l9l4 --
Those who are forced to live in this city --
One afternoon we separated --
There was no inevitability --
A young sniper --
Like everything else --
After the offensive --
These crazy countries --
Darling, your face is turning white --
Exile from home --
Banja Luka --
The Bosnian Serbs are farmers --
The West promises much --
In Sarajevo I was happy --
My mother's death --
If I could find sleep --
It's very much like him --
No no no you don't understand --
Let me tell you the story of my friend --
All that he'd hoped for --
At a dinner --
They are finding mass graves --
Early October --
Away --
Winter snows --
No one can tell you --
The world is full.
Responsibility: by Adrian Oktenberg.
