“I was a child during the war. One of the worst memories from the war for me was the cockroaches. Many of the old buildings in Sarajevo had a cockroach problem, and there was no electricity. It was dark at night with no lights. I used to wake up in the middle of the night with cockroaches walking on my chest. It was terrible. You can get used to the sounds of shooting, but you never get used to the cockroaches. The Germans lost World War Two, and then there was a re-education in Germany after the war. But there’s been no re-education with the Serbs. They still think Karadžić and Mladić are saints though they are convicted war criminals. There’s no change in their thinking.”
