Tuesday: 20th Anniversary of the War in Bosnia

Two decades after covering the war in Bosnia, Anna Maria Tremonti
returns to find the city of Sarajevo rebuilt, but lives still shattered.

Tomorrow we bring you a special edition of The Current to mark the start of the 20th anniversary of the war in Bosnia and the start of the siege of Sarajevo. Anna Maria reported extensively on that conflict in the early 90s and was just back in Sarajevo to see how the city... and the country... have evolved.

Anna Maria was there with Carol Off, host of As It Happens who began covering Bosnia in the waning days of the war and did a significant amount of reporting on the crimes of that war. You can listen for Carol's story on Bosnia all week beginning tonight on As It Happens.

One of the people you'll hear on our program tomorrow is Retired Bosnia army General Jovan Divjak. He defended the city during the war and now he runs a non-governmental organization for children victimized by the war.

Here is a short excerpt from that interview, in translation:
