Auteur: Sacco, Joe
Titel: Safe area Gorazde
Sub titel: The war in eastern Bosnia 1992-1995
Over the span of four visits in late 1995 and early 1996, Joe Sacco visited and documented the war in Bosnia through the eyes of the citizens of Gorazde, a UN "Safe Area" that was anything but. He witnessed the end of a war and the beginning of a future during his time spent amongst the people there. He recorded horror so barbaric and hope so human as to shock anyone that reads his book. He saw a people marginalized and ignored by the world, a people that had fought house-to-house and block-by-block to save their lives, a people that wanted little more than to not have to see any more of their friends and neighbors die horribly as they started to recall the little boring things of a normal life.
