The author describes the conditions in besieged and bombarded Sarajevo, emphasizing the situation of Croats in this city that Serb aggressors and insurgents attempted to conquer. Using her memories and recounting the events of that time, the author presents her thoughts concerning the role and circumstances of Croatian cultural and religious institutions in Sarajevo as well as the complex situation in which the Croats found themselves as the smallest national community in Sarajevo, caught in the middle of newly “disordered”
national and state interests. The article is a blend of historiography and memoir with the author’s emphasis on establishing a few of the many possible directions of future scholarly research of the wartime events in Bosnia and Hercegovina from 1991 to 1995.
