How do we mark this moment? The agreement reached on that distant air-force base has had a profound impact on the shaping of Bosnia […]

The Search Continues

International Day of the Disappeared is not an abstract commemoration of a far off event. Many around us are living with a terrible curse, not only of losing a loved one, but of not being able to put them and their memory to rest. In my time in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), I’ve met many […]
