    1. Now that’s what I call a concert hall!


    2. Despite what it signifies, I find the picture most beautiful.


    3. Poor Chetniks! Start the first concentration camp since Hitler, and any number of shady rape camps full of 10-year olds, and you lose your fucking library. Oh, well, no one said life was fair.


    4. Do your research before you post any comments. It is very disrespectful to anyone that has lived through this war. Which is basically what this picture represents. I guess I shouldn’t expect much from people that have not lived through something as grueling as a war. Any war that is. This man played in the Sarajevo Opera and during the war he came to one spot in the middle of the city to play his cello. In the beginning of the war in 1992 he played his cello for 22 days to honor the 22 people that had been killed waiting to receive bread to be able to eat something, for most it was the first meal in more than a week. This picture was taken in the ruins of the Sarajevo Library of Vedran Smailovic playing his cello while he knew he might be shot, beaten, or killed. Day after day he came to play his cello, his courage and his music was stronger than fear or any hate during that time. After the 22 days passed, his legacy lived on. If you mention his name to anyone that currently lives in Bosnia or anyone that has experienced this war, they will know exactly who you are talking about and will tell you how amazing and courages of a person he is. So no, this picture is not about how just a Library was lost. This picture is also not just an image someone might have about a humorous “concert hall.” This picture is exactly about how many people lost their lives and how many families have lost a mom, dad, a sister or a brother.
