This is a view from the slopes of Mount Igman, looking down onto the city. The houses and villages up here have all been destroyed during heavy fighting. Large stretches of the pine forest have been reduced to shattered stumps and, as though still shocked by the experience, show little signs of re-growth. The ground is pock marked by earthworks and shell holes. A few years earlier the Serb forces would have been defending this place as they laid siege to Sarajevo. From up here they could see right into the heart of the city, drop a shell where they wanted and their snipers could pick off people on the streets at will. This place, more than any part of the city itself gave me some insight into the nature of their ordeal.
