We bet that every city has a month of change. If we speak about Sarajevo, that would probably be April. Known as the month that is making people leave their winter clothes in the closet, April has changed the life of the Sarajevo people as well. The month of changes, winnings, losses and more, April will be always special for every Sarajevo person.
It started with partisans and Valter.
Let’s jump quickly to 1979 on the 5th of April. The moment when most of the people in Europe couldn’t figure it out how the basketball club from a small city conquered European basketball.
Siege of Sarajevo and mostly red instead of green April.
This event will be actually 1,425 days long. It will take 11541 life and it will make an enormous twist for everything that you knew about Sarajevo. War and destruction became the main topic connected with Sarajevo. Siege of Sarajevo will create a huge shadow on top of everything that happened before. Everything in April became red, from snipers, grenades, and shootings. Somehow in this month, the sun is reviving the old spirits that were buried underneath the snowscape during the winter.
Siege of Sarajevo officially started the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Everything that happened in the 90’s needs to be remembered and never repeated. Every victim in Bosnia and Herzegovina should teach us to look at the Sun that April is giving to us and to grow. From the terrible past, we created a success. We do believe that we can repeat that again together and united as one.
