The story of Jasminka, a refugee who fled from Bosnia-Herzegovina to Italy where she now is a teacher of music. She also holds painting exhibitions. She has become my good friend.
This war was like a bad idea, a nightmare, and you couldnt find the time to understand what was happening and why. It seemed that my first war was far away, until it happened to us !
How to explain this to my children ? Even I was not ready for this. One was scared and I was still young. The people we lived with, they became strangers after they became our ennemies.
This was all very bad for me; I had a good education, showed respect. Nationalism and Racism were brutal words. The war is a punishment for those that suffer.
