"... und Sarajevo muß für alles zahlen." ["... and Sarajevo has to pay for everything."]

koric davor und sarajevoTheatre and television dramaturge Davor Korić writes 22 letters from Sarajevo to his wife Dragana and their children, who have fled to Germany, between July 1992 and May 1993. Korić gives a detailed account of everyday life and death during the siege of his home town. He reflects on the end of Yugoslavia, describes the political catastrophe of the multicultural city and the consequences for mixed-national families like his own. His letters have a literary character in addition to being private and documentary, as he manages to give universal meaning to his personal feelings in an unexpected, absurd and brutal life situation.
