sarajevo: mass grave / by Maranie Staab

this image is of one of many mass graves that can be found in sarajevo, bosnia marking the deaths of thousands of bosnians who died during the siege of sarajevo (92-96) and the larger bosnian war. 

as mentioned, there are numerous cemeteries that look like this one throughout the city with at least one dedicated solely to children. being surrounded by grave markers whose birth and death dates do not span even one decade leaves a lasting impression. that said, bosnia, and the entire balkan region, is a gorgeous part of the world and one that i look forward to returning to again.
