  • Safe Area Gorazde


In late 1995 and early 1996, cartoonist/reporter Joe Sacco traveled four times to Gorzade, a U.N.-designated safe area during the Bosnian War, which had teetered on the brink of obliteration for three and a half years. Still surrounded by Bosnian Serb forces, the mainly Muslim people of Gorzade had endured heavy attacks and severe privation to hang on to their town while the rest of Eastern Bosnia was brutally 'leansed'of its non-Serb population. But as much as SAFE AREA GORZADE is an account of a terrible siege, it presents a snapshot of people who were slowly letting themselves believe that a war was ending and that they had survived.

Includes a foreword by Christopher Hitchens.
