The Oslobodenje Building


At the beginning of the war, Sarajevo's biggest newspaper, Oslobodenje (Freedom), declared that they would not miss a single day of publication no matter what happened. Their commitment to their readership was certainly tested--this is their headquarters. In April 1992, the large complex with 14-story triple towers was completely decimated by a focussed onslaught of tanks, machine guns and grenade launchers. It remains unrepaired to this day as a reminder and a monument to the thousands that died in Sarajevo during the war.

And they kept their promise--they didn't miss a single issue.
