Set in 1992 during the height of the Bosnian war S reveals one of the most horrifying aspects of any war the rape and torture of civilian women by occupying forces S is the story of a Bosnian woman in exile who has just given birth to an unwanted child one wi I don’t know why I have read this book at this very time close to Christmas it is a devastating book and it is nothing compared to the reality experienced by this woman which the author will simply call SThis woman will be deported along with other residents of her village only to be Bosnian This was enough during the terrible war in the Balkans in 1992 to determine the death of peopleI say immediately the narration and the events that are reported are strong if not ' than most of the books about holocaust's survivors i have read in the past I really feel the bowels tightened since I read it started and finished late at night because I couldn’t uite get away from S’s voiceImprisoned together with women and children in a Concentration camp S recounts her tragedy as a victim of daily rapes by Serbian soldiersRape and pregnancies fit just like ethnic cleansing These women thus become unable to differentiate between the victim and the subjugated; crushed by that power of life and death in the hands of these beasts who until a few months before were their neighbors their bakers electricians ethc a life in the villages that was once based on sharing and respect but now devastated by the laws of warS will perhaps be the only one who will try to see beyond the mechanisms of survival and evil even if torn apart by these physical sufferings and mental stereotypes in defense of what is indescribableS will come to a real introspection of herself once she finds out she is pregnant by those orgies of evil and flesh Not even the luck of being able to be evacuated to Zagreb and then herself only to Stockholm will change that sense of free fall of heart and no hope for a new lifeThe child is never mentioned initially if not as a cancer a disease of war but the deep meditation work on herself and the unscheduled circumstances such as the carelessness of a nurse who will put her baby on her breast once born she wanted to give him in adoption; it will slowly take S to look at that flesh that is pulsating and living on her chest as a human being That childcancer will then be her salvation and new and positive chance of life despite an unstoppable pain these are real facts lived and happened to thousands of women in the Balkans whether Serbs Bosnians or CroatsI voluntarily left aside real facts of sexual violence described against childrenIo non so perchè ho letto uesto libro proprio in uesto periodo a ridosso del Natale è un libro devastante ed è niente in confronto alla realtà vissuta da uesta donna che l'autrice chiamerà semplicemente Suesta donna verrà deportata insieme ad altri abitanti del suo villaggio unicamente per essere bosniaca con padre musulmano bastava uesto durante la tremenda guerra nei balcani del 1992 per determinare la morte delle personeDico subito la narrazione e le vicende ivi riportare sono forti se non piu' rispetto alla maggior parte dei libri dei sopravvissuti all' olocausto Mi sento veramente le viscere strette da uando l' ho letto iniziato e terminato a tarda notte perchè non riuscivo assolutamente a staccarmi dalla voce di SRinchiusa insieme a donne e bambini in un campo di prigionia S racconta la sua tragedia di donna vittima di stupri di gruppo uotidiani da parte dei soldati serbiLo stupro e le relative gravidanze atte proprio come pulizia etnica ueste donne diventano uindi incapaci di differenziare la vittima dal soggiogato Schiacciate da uel potere di vita e morte nelle mani di ueste bestie che sino a pochi mesi prima erano i loro vicini di casa i loro panettieri elettricisti etccuna vita nei villaggi che un tempo era basata sulla condivisione e il rispetto ma ora devastata dalle leggi della guerraS sarà forse l'unica che cercherà di vedere oltre ai meccanismi di sopravvivenza e di male anche se dilaniata da ueste sofferenze fisiche e stereotipie mentali atti a difesa da ciò che è indescrivibileS arriverà ad una vera introspezione di se stessa una volta scoperto di essere incinta da uelle orgie di male e carne Neanche la fortuna di riuscire ad essere tutti evacuati a Zagabria e poi unicamente lei sino a Stoccolma modificherà uel senso di caduta libera del cuore di speranza di una vita nuovaIl bambino non viene mai citato inizialmente se non come un cancro una malattia della guerra ma il lavoro di riflessione su se stessa e le circostanze non programmate come la sbadataggine di una infermiera che le metterà il piccolo sul petto una volta nato; la porteranno pian piano a guardare uella carne pulsante e vivente come un essere umano uel bambinoil cancro sarà poi la sua salvezza e possibilità di vita nonostante un dolore inarrestabile uesti sono fatti veri vissuti e accaduti a migliaia di donne nei balcani che fossero serbe bosniache o croateho volontariamente lasciato da parte fatti veri di violente sessuali descritte nei confronti dei bambini

Thout a country a name a father or a language Its birth only reminds her of an even grueling experience being repeatedly raped by Serbian soldiers in the women's room of a prison camp Through a series of flashbacks S relives the unspeakable crimes she has end When your country is at war with another or perhaps many others you are aware of the risk to human life You know soldiers will die you know that some of these may be people you know or even your loved ones But though the civilians at home worry about those who are away fighting for their country they rarely see themselves as part of the war The threat to them seems far away almost unreal So when the occupying forces marched into the Bosnian village where S lived her immediate reaction is not of panic She is mildly annoyed for having been woken up but she still has faith in the human capacity for reason and she believes that if she surrenders her jewellry and valuables without making a fuss then no one will do her any harm In other words she is naiveThe civilians are captured and taken away to work camps one for men and one for women But deep within the female camp is the room that every prisoner dreads the women's room A room where women become objects to be used by the soldiers a room of pain and despair where all hope dies and a person is forced to become empty Being empty in your mind abandoning your body at will this is the only way to survive Drakulic shows the extent of human depravity in one of the most disturbing accounts of captivity during wartime Her use of the first letter in place of the women's names is important in understanding the ability to dehumanize the enemy they become things and not people It is repulsive scary and sad But the author in my opinion never slips over into the gratuitous because her focus is on S's inner turmoil It is not just about the sexual abuse the beatings and cruelty it's about the effect this has on the victims how they retreat inside themselves and the lengths they go to in order to keep their sanity in a world gone mad Not only that but she even looks at what it's like to be a soldier blindly following orders dehumanizing yourself to find the ability to commit atrocities during war It's easy to have enemies and it's easy to hate but what does it take to make you someone who can torture another human being? What must they become in your mind? What must you become?When showing the crimes men commit towards women when showing a group of male soldiers laughing at a woman's pain it becomes so easy to delve into misandry You hate the Serbian soldiers you hate the things they do to the women But this is only partly a gender issue Drakulic wants to tell the many untold stories of women during the Bosnian war there are an estimated 60000 rape victims she wants us to know about the suffering they faced because of their gender But for the author humanity has one common enemy regardless of your race religion or gender and that is war War makes us all something other than human it allows those with the power to become monstrous and it allows those without it to be seen as verminThough the author chose to focus on the Bosnian war and particularly the way women were treated during this war the backbone of this story is universally applicable She expertly tells a story about some of the vilest most horrific things that can happen to a human being she captures humanity at it's best and worst showing exactly what we are capable of both the good and the bad
