We celebrate Eid by going to mosque for the morning Eid prayer. My husband together with his brother, nephews and neighborus goes to the mosque to worship Eid prayers.

The old Bosnian crafts are in extinction. There's less smithy in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sometimes smiths were shops in a small factory, because there is a lot production. but when opening new factories there is less and less smithy. Today they are rare, but luckily some things can be found only in the blacksmith shop. They have therefore extended service life.

We spend every Bajram at my mother-in-laws place. Beside baklava, on the menue every year there are different traditional meals. There is also this pie called "corava" or translated "blind" pie, which is on its way to the oven.

They came back. Some of them started their journey at this very same place. And this is how they return. They will finally find their peace. Let them rest in peace.

U Potocare su u petak popodne stigli i ucesnici marsa iz Zepe. Ovo je moj mali doprinos da ne zaboravimo ko je sve bio. Hvala im sto saosjecaju sa nama i oni i svi drugi ucesnici. Photo by Selma

Yesterday afternoon in Potocari arrived bikers who came from around the world to set off from Bihac. I am grateful for everyone who came to pay their respects to the victims of genocide.

Since the house of my husband's parents was burnt down we have made a board for a new house, but donations are slow. So every year we go there at least once. But it is too far to go more often. This is the day we met there with her husband's family.

This is how we make home made noodles for soup that we call TARHANA. This is our traditional meal. I prepare it at home, too.

It looks like an ordinery flower but it blossoms just before sunset (aksham). The name is sunset flower (akshamlija). Its blossom lasts only for a day but it brings me so many beautiful memories about my childhood and about those months of Ramadan when in summer. We used to sit in our backyards and wait for these flowers to blossom and for the lights of Zvornik's mosque to light up. I have those flowers in my backyard now, our mosques are now the ones in Tuzla and only my remaining memories are from Zvornik. Photo by Selma

My mother in law is visiting her aunt and uncle who are returnees to Osmace in Srebrenica. When war started they lost their son and were forced to leave their home and then survived the fall of Srebrenica in '95. But nothing could diminish their will to return to their home town. The faces of these two eighty year old people say more than words can ever tell.

Once upon a time coffee was an excuse for us to sit down and talk, and now coffee is just an excuse.. But we still spend time together.

The father in law of my sister in law. He lost three sons and always waited to hear from them. Unfortunately he died on July, 9th of 2005 and buried the day after in Srebrenica. He was buried one day before his first son got buried in Srebrenica Poto?ari

My brother-in-law hands over the money that just arrived from America to our mother-in-law. Without this help from outside our live would be difficult.

This is a place in which many Bosnian Moslems lost their blood. (Some 1,000 – 2,000 men were brought here as prisoners of the Bosnian Serb troops. Hand grenades were thrown into the barns. Two men survived.) In the meantime (2005) we buried my father in law who was also murdered here.

Every day this man prays for the return of his sons. He lost them in the war and is still waiting for them. He lives together with his grandsons and sisters-in-law.

This is the schoolyard in Srebrenica where the first grenade fell. An air raid here killed over 100 people and injured more than 200 in a single day.

This man here lost his son in 1995. Šacir, that is his name, was the first person to return to Srebrenica this year. He wants to be close to his son and prays for him every day. (2005: Šacir is no longer alive.)
