Goodbye Sarajevo Summary ☆ 8 May 1992 Hana is twelve years old when her older sister Atka puts her on a UN evacuation bus fleeing the besieged city of Sarajevo Thinking they will be apart for a short time they make a promise to each other to be. Do you understand much about the situation here I asked I m trying to he said but it s confusing because you all look the same Serbs Croats and Muslims I can t tell the difference Mike got up and slung his cameras around his neck I don t understand how you lived side by side for so long and then the Serbs turned against you He shook his head In my opinion no human understood or will ever understand the reasons of ethnic killingIn the beginning the novel was very interesting because it told two sides of the story Atka and her family being in Sarajevo and Hana and Nadia who had the chance to go to Croatia as refugeesI also found it very interesting that the family consisted of 10 siblings and two grandmothers which is unusual of Bosnian families be that huge it was kind of sad to see how each of them coped with the war

Goodbye Sarajevo Summary ☆ 8 L in a city overwhelmed by crime and destruction Then when Atka manages to find work as a translator events take an unexpected turn and the remarkable events that follow change her life and those of her family foreve. It never ceases to amaze me the level of horror degradation and deprivation humans continue to put on one another in the name of some pumped up righteous ideal The evidence has been mounting for centuries that slugging it out means there are a lot losers than winners Yet time and time again when the human story is revealed it is the ordinary folk intent on surviving that show us what courage and strength mean It is the love and connection to those closest that means super human feats are performed Goodbye Sarajevo is one such story it centered around a large family from Sarajevo Atka the eldest daughter and Hana a younger sister kept journals throughout their ordeals So much of the story is lifted from these and gives you a real sense of what they went through and how such things fell It is a lesson in gratitude and love The family are not strongly religious or political but clearly have ethics and humanity and this is what I believe serves them all so well in the end It is a wonderful read that has you feeling very desperate for them all but with a touching and surprising end Highly recommend

    (Pdf Read) [Goodbye Sarajevo] I was torn whether to give this book two or three stars it really needs 25The story is very moving and it was good to read a first hand experience But the writing is not particularly engaging and I think it could have been so much Living through the Sarajevo siege was clearly traumatic difficult and horrifying yet through this the Atka's family stayed strong but the emotion of the writing was a little flat I really should have felt moved
