In late 1995, only a month after the Bosnian War's official cease-fire, cartoonist Joe Sacco successfully navigated United Nations red tape, obtained a press pass and hopped aboard an armored vehicle to the besieged town of Goražde. Wanting more than simply to collect interviews and photo opportunities, Sacco embedded himself in the community, gaining the trust of residents and refugees alike, even forming some close friendships. Their horrifying experiences and misery are illustrated here in disquieting detail.
Safe Area Goražde is a phenomenal and unforgettable read. Prior to reading, I'd had only a vague understanding of the conflict and the players involved -- now I'm certain I'll never forget.
One of the best nonfiction graphic novels I've read.
A very interesting and compelling graphic novel that describes the intense war in Bosnia. Sacco tactfully inserts himself into the narrative, bringing you closer to the people whose lives have been devastated. The hand-drawn illustrations are remarkably lifelike.
This graphic novel would be appropriate for anyone wishing to understand the events leading up to and including the conflict in Bosnia and the fallout from the former Yugoslavia.
