    Kindle Atka Reid ☆ Goodbye Sarajevo ePUB ✓ ☆ goodbye epub, sarajevo ebok, Goodbye Sarajevo MOBIuite an amazing story of the harshness of war the love of family and the transformation afforded by deeds of the kindhearted and generous of spirit when moved by pity towards our defenceless sisters This is the story of the children of a family torn apart by the outrages of war in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 1990s The experiences of the two narrating sisters are uite different with the 21 year old Atka forced to stay behind in Sarajevo and act as mother to her many other siblings; and Hana who made it to the relative safety of Croatia and had a conventional though lonely and parentless experience in which she went to school and was supported by the family

    Kindle Atka Reid ☆ Goodbye Sarajevo ePUB ✓ ☆ goodbye epub, sarajevo ebok, Goodbye Sarajevo MOBIIt 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

    Kindle Atka Reid ☆ Goodbye Sarajevo ePUB ✓ ☆ goodbye epub, sarajevo ebok, Goodbye Sarajevo MOBIA true story of two sisters from a large Muslim family living in Sarajevo who recount their life after the disintegration of Yugoslavia and the subseuent attacks on Sarajevo by the Bosnian Serbs Near starvation lack of fuel and heating lack of care and support from the Western world lack of money and lack of communications all contribute to a very unpleasant survival regime for the inhabitants of Sarajevo The mother is trapped in Vienna the only son is drafted into the army and two of the sisters are moved to safety in Zagreb Croatia The family once close and supportive is no longer the family they knew and loved Extended family members are killed or wounded by mortar shell and snipers their endeavours to rummage for sufficient nourishment and fear and constant threat of death dominate their lives I found it an excellent account of the terrifying challenges anyone under such extremes would face Add to this the incredible chance encounters the fortunes of being in the right

    Kindle Atka Reid ☆ Goodbye Sarajevo ePUB ✓ ☆ goodbye epub, sarajevo ebok, Goodbye Sarajevo MOBII 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 than I did It read like a list of I did this he did that then we did something else There was a lack of description of emotions and relationships So I think this is an important book that should be read particularly given that in the last twenty years the world still hasn't learnt to treat refugee
