Sarajevo still divided after twenty years
April 6 marked the 20th anniversary of the siege of Sarajevo and the start of the Bosnian war. From NPR: “Over three-and-a-half years of war, 100,000 people were killed, and half of Bosnia’s population of 4.4 million — made up of a plurality of Muslims — fled their homes… Today, despite the intervention of the international community, ethnic division is deeply entrenched in what some analysts describe as a failed state.”

In 2009 a group of Women of Vision traveled to Bosnia to learn more about the effects of this war and the work of World Vision in the region. A series of four films was produced; one is below and the others can be viewed here.
