"Alexander von Humboldt knew it. Thomas Obruča looked at the world with his lines in the work Ahmići - soundly, honestly and clearly. A psychological masterpiece of historical significance."

"This single fate in a child's narrative shows the utter madness of "ethnic cleansing" in Bosnia and in Bosnia and Herzegovina much more vividly and mercilessly than many comprehensive reports of international investigative bodies.

 

Not an easy read, but necessary to learn the lessons of this dark chapter of history and hopefully to prevent future genocides."

 

Manfred Nowak , University Professor for Human Rights in Vienna and Secretary General of the Global Campus of Human Rights in Venice*
