During the four-year siege of the Bosnian capital city of Sarajevo, hundreds of thousands of bombs rained upon the city from the surrounding hills. Every shell exploding on a road or paved area left an imprint resembling that of a flower. Today, some of these craters remain, their ‘petals’ painted red and referred to as ‘Sarajevo roses’ by its citizens, like scars on the heart, a reminder of the innocent blood that was spilled on these streets.
