Logavina Street


Barbara Demick's book "Logavina Street: Life and Death in a Sarajevo Neighborhood." recounts the life of ordinary Sarajevans during the siege and how they coped with its numerous challenges.

Near the foot of Logavina Street is the home of the Canadian embassy. A famous figure in the Bosnian Territorial Defence Forces (TDF) also lived at the foot of Logavina Street, Jovan Divjak. Even though he was a Serb, Jovan was the second-highest ranking general in the hastily-thrown together army that defended the city and is considered a hero by many.

Logavina Street runs steeply up a hillside, and it was only a ten-minute walk to the front lines.

Imagine if this was your front door during the siege...
