Besieged : Life Under Fire on a Sarajevo Street, Paperback / softback Book

Besieged : Life Under Fire on a Sarajevo Street Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


For four centuries, Logavina Street was a quiet residential road in a city known for its ethnic tolerance and cosmopolitan charm.

Muslims, Christians, Serbs and Croats lived easily together, sharing an identity as Bosnians.

Then the war tore their lives apart. Often without heat, water, food or electricity, they evaded daily sniper fire and witnessed horrific deaths.

Neighbours and friends turned into deadly enemies. In this intimate eyewitness account, Barbara Demick weaves together the stories of ten families from Logavina Street, brilliantly illuminating one of the pivotal events of the twentieth century, and describes how, twenty years later, they are coping with the war's consequences. .
