"...the most consequential war of our time..."

Martin Bell, journalist

Welcome to the Unconquered Bosnia! page. This homepage is multiethnic/multiconfessional...ALL are welcome. If you have a story of your experience in wartime Bosnia, I'd love to hear it and post it on this site. Please note when sending the story whether you give permission to post it on this site or whether you prefer to keep it private and are merely sending it as background information for the novel The Reap Hook. And please indicate whether you want your name used as a tagline or not.
REMEMBER: This is a neutral site. You are welcome to your opinion on the war protagonists and I will post it, but the site itself remains NEUTRAL and open to EVERYONE!
NOTE: Please limit information to the war. We do not cover the Post-Dayton IFOR/SFOR period.

The author (Peter DePree) has spent two years writing a novel The Reap Hook set in wartime Bosnia and is seeking personal stories from individuals who lived through the war.

BRIEF OVERVIEW: Because Sarajevo has been overrepresented in media accounts, it is deemphasized as a section in this novel, however two scenes (The Unexploded Girl and Love Story) touch on this particular scene. There are scenes of mass grave exhumation (The Sunflower Field) By far the largest section of the book covers the Srebrenica massacre through the eyes of a female reporter (Fellini, Srebrenica) Large sections of the book include a you-are-there account of the ethnic cleansing of Prijedor Town in opstina Prijedor ("they were our neighbors"). The subjects are transported to Omarska, Keraterm, Ciglane and Trnopolje (The Slaughter Computer) and then follows an extended account of life in the Trnopolje/Keraterm/Omarska triad (Red House, White House.)
The next focus is on the press and refugees at Tuzla airbase.


Particularly interested in stories from anyone who was in the municipality during the ethnic cleansing of 1992. Also interested in intimate details of life in opstina Prijedor and Prijedor Town, including Kozarac, Hambarine, Rizvanovici and all surrounding villages and hamlets.

Muslim, Croatian, Serb, mixed marriages, Gypsy (Roma), ethnic Hungarians, Jews etc. The "mundane" description of life just before and during the war are invaluable to me. This can include but is not limited to: worship, farming, recipes, housing, recreation, sports, the market, schooling, music, movies, popular novels and literature, TV shows--i.e. any details that can help fine-focus and fix in the reader's mind what it was like to live in Former Yugoslavia just before and during the conflict.

Omarska, Keraterm, Manjaca, Trnopolje, Luka-Brcko, Batkovic, Susica etc. and the transportation to these camps.

At the time of the July 1995 influx of Srebrenica survivors and the ensuing few weeks. (VERY IMPORTANT.)

Homemade weapons, mines, assault rifles, sniper rifles, mortars and mortar emplacements, multiple rocket launchers, communication networks, tanks, trucks, jeeps, boobytraps, uniforms. Including details on how mosques and/or Orthodox churches and rimokatolik cathedrals were destroyed with anti-tank mines, sniper nests, trenches and sniper barriers etc. Especially interested in details of the TDF, paramilitias (especially Arkanovci and Seseljovci) and their uniforms, insignia, and equipment.

Including equipment used (cameras, laptops, satphones, body armor etc.) how stories were dispatched, how transportation was arranged and checkpoints negotiated, media censorship, interface with UNPROFOR, UNHCR press accreditation, and related anecdotes.

Accounts of the day-to-day hardships in Sarajevo, Gorazde, Bihac, Zepa, Mostar, Zenica and the other pockets. Especially avoiding snipers, use of ham radio, details on humanitarian relief, burial procedure, availabilty (or lack of) medical support and pharmaceuticals, herbal remedies used in place of standard medicines, etc.
I am also interested in the cultural life of the city under siege--the theater, concerts, poetry readings, gallery art shows held under siege conditions.
FOOTNOTE: Presently, I'm looking for details on the people who snuck out of Gorazde through the mountain passes during the winter to get supplies. I also need eyewitness accounts of DutchBat in Srebrenica ('95) and the Ukrainian peacekeepers in Zepa ('95.)

Personal accounts of peacekeepers are badly needed--including but not limited to eyewitness accounts to ethnic cleansing and its aftermath, population displacement, logistics of aid convoys, interface with the community, mine-clearing, convoy support, etc.
I also need details on the armored Land Rovers, APCs, anti-sniper systems, chain-of-command, rules of engagement, sidearms, dynamics between the various battalions etc.

If you worked for an NGO in Former Yugoslavia during the war your story, insight, and reflections are vitally important. Especially interested in truck convoys into danger areas, medevac of civilians, extortion tax at checkpoints, sniping, mines.

Focus on accounts of how the various media were used to dispense propaganda during the lead-up to the conflict and during the conflict. Including TV, radio, newspapers.

Including any information on Iranian, Saudi, Tunisian, Afghani, or etc. 'muj', the Green Highway, the philosophy behind "Land of Jihad", and the Russian soldiers-for-hire used by the Serbs.

If you were involved in the airdrops or enforcing "no-fly" your detailed accounts of same are invaluable--especially details of the planes used, cockpit scenario, logistics, challenges, etc. (I especially need feedback from anyone who has info on 1995 Tuzla AB.)

If you were involved in locating or exhumation of the mass graves, your information is badly needed. (I'm interested in the technical aspects as much as personal reflection.)

The author's work has been published in many magazines, including The Writer, The Australian Way (QANTAS Airways inflight magazine), The Bloomsbury Review, Wild West, America's Civil War, Combo, Comic Book Marketplace, Comic's Buyers Guide, Tales From the Edge. His work has been reprinted in several annuals including the college textbook Contemporary Literary Criticism 1996.

Your information is invaluable to me and deeply appreciated. Confidentiality assured. In addition to contacting me by email with any information, if you have copies of letters, postcards, transcripts, photos or xeroxes of photos, slides, videotape, audiotape, copies of email messages, books, personal journals or etc. these are crucial to giving a detailed and accurate background to my novel.
If you have transcript of field interviews with victims of ethnic cleansing, rape warfare, and other war crimes (with names redacted if necessary) these would be extremely helpful.

I would appreciate your circulating this page to anyone you know who may have some stories and insight to share on the conflict in the Former Yugoslavia. Zdravo za sada!

"I am going away from them to regain my strength, while my soul is tearing apart. My head is full of the images of those small faces passing through, their lives destroyed...I go back home. Trying to forget all this. In vain. I cannot sleep. The lives of those children haunt me. destroyed lives...Torn from everything."
