Line of Blood

6 April 2012, eleven thousand five hundred forty-one red chairs lined the main street through downtown Sarajevo, symbolizing the number of civilian victims of the 1992 siege--vividly described in this article by Roland de Courson, in this story by Peter Andrews, at this blog, and in this collection at Reuters.

Many thanks to Seesaw, whose now defunct photo blog first opened my eyes to the beauty of Sarajevo.
