The Siege of Sarajevo, today 20 years ago

The Siege of Sarajevo, today 20 years ago

The Siege of Sarajevo has been memorialised in books, films, and numerous monuments, including a can of beef. During the nearly four-year siege of the Bosnian War, 160,000 tons of food and medicine were airlifted to the people of Sarajevo but it was not always appreciated. Most of the food was inedible and outdated, leftovers from the Vietnam War.
