Bosnia, May 15, 1992: The civil war in Bosnia has been ongoing since the beginning of April, and Sarajevo is under heavy siege. On this day, the Bosnian civil war is about to reach the country's third largest and most multicultural city, Tuzla.
The war in Ukraine brought up painful memories of the past in an already hard-tested Bosnian population. Around half of Bosnia and Herzegovina residents fled during the war, and many never returned.
