From: Ibrahim Spahi, Director E-mail IPC_SA@ZAMIR-SA.ZTN.ZER.DE To: To whome it concern My name is Ibrahim Spahi, and I am a director of the Festival Sarajevo - Sarajevo Winter. With this letter I would like to inform you about our Festival. FESTIVAL SARAJEVO - SARAJEVO WINTER Address: Titova 7A, Sarajevo 71 000 Phone/Fax: 387 71 44 23 28 387 71 66 36 26 E-mail: IPC_SA@ZAMIR-SA.ZTN.ZER.DE Contact person: Ibrahim Spahi, Director TABLE OF CONTENTS: THEATRE CONCERTS FILM VIDEO EXHIBITIONS CULTURAL HERITAGE ROUND TABLES LITERARY EVENTS FOLKLORE ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAMS PROGRAM OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION ECO PROGRAMS SPECIAL PROGRAMS The "Sarajevo Winter" Festival is a traditional cultural event with national and international character, which first season was in 1984/85 in the same time when the XIV Olimpic Winter Games took place. For ten years of its existance the Festival has proven to be an active and inseparable part of the life of the town. For ten seasons and 516 days of "Sarajevo Winter" there were about 900 various performances and exhibitions with more that a million and 750 thousand visitors and severalthousand participants. Artist coming from all over the world have given international character to the event. Since 1985 The Aristic Community "Collegium Artisticum" has been taking an active part in performances. The permanent tribune for cultural and scietific gatherings gathered about 480 scientific public and cultural workers, journalists and artists with noticable effects. The "Sarajevo Winter" Festival is a promoter and organizer together with the International Peace Center - Sarajevo of the projects "Sarajevo the Cultural Capitol of the Europe" and "Sarajevo the Open City". Project "Sarahevo the Cultural Capitol of the Europe" has been support by European Community, European Forum for Cultures (Amsterdan), Associations "Sarajevo Cultural Capitol of Europe" (paris, Brussels, Barcelona,...),etc. By organizing the Festival we call upon the World to decide on freedom, peace, creative work as substitute for starvation, death and fascism. In that way "Sarajevo Winter" Festival proves to be not a cultural manifestation but life itself. This year season of the Festival took place in Sarajevo from 7th of February to 21st of March 1995. In the framework of the XI International Festival Sarajevo - Sarajevo Winter '95, 150 projects was realized. All the theaters, galleries and cultural institutions from Sarajevo was include in the Festival, as well as artists, writers, cultural workers, etc. from abroad (Sweden, France, Spain, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Switzerland, United States of America,...). For the first time, during the war, artists from other Bosnian cities had opportunity to come and participate in the Festival (Tuzla, Mostar, Visoko). Considering that artists from Zenica couldn't come to Sarajevo, a part of the XI International Festival Sarajevo - Sarajevo Winter '95 took place in Zenica. The Festival was followed by 60.000 visitors and 91 journalist from 21 information houses. This years Festival was under the auspice of Mr. Daniel Tarchiys, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, UNESCO; supported by European Cultural Foundation Communnity Europeennes and Region de Bruxelles-Capitale Cabinet du Ministre; general promoter was the International Peace Center - Sarajevo.

The group was formed in 1990 with the principal aim of protecting the filmakers and their work. At its inception the group directed its attention towards the short forms of propaganda, advertisements and music videos. But later it broadened its activities, producing, in conjunction with BiH TV, the documentary "Kuduz - truth and lies." The film was entered at the FIPA festival in Cannes in 1990 From the very beginning of the aggression against Bosnia and Herzegovina the crews of SAGA have taken to the streets, on a daily basis, detailing the very pulse of the besieged and ravaged city. In addition to this everyday activity, the group's members are currently preparing three features films from the documentary material culled from the daily shoots. Starting on 8 November 1993 a two minute film was being shot daily in Sarajevo and later the same evening shown just before the headline news in the USA (WPIX and Tribune Channels), France (TV France), Britain (BBC2) and Denmark (TV Denmark). Preparations were under way for the program to be shown in Japan, Holland, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Germany and in the countries of Eastern Europe. This program, entitled "Sarajevo -Street Under Siege" is cooproduced by the French Point du Jour company, the BBC and SAGA. This program was to be broadcast from November 8th to December 7th 1993. "Sarajevo - A Street Under The Siege represents a sort of revolution in contemporary TV media production presenting directly, with no commentary or the imposition of journalistic opinions, a glimpse of the daily life in the besieged city of Sarajevo, This is also a completely new approach to presenting the events taking place in Sarajevo and in Bosnia & Herzegovina, enabling the viewer to witness the life and thoughts of Sarajevans clearly and directly. This project received Price Award of British Royal Academy for original idea (European Oscar). In addition to this very important project the SAGA material is currently translating and subtitling to the French and English versions of the film, which was presented at the FIPA Festival in Cannes in January 1994. In November, 1993 SAGA's own Nedzad Begovic (director) and Ahmed Imamovic (cameraman) returned to Sarajevo having spent two months filming around the free territories of Bosnia and Herzegovina. They brought the precious material they filmed and which was later viewed and edited. SAGA helped organized the Sarajevo Film Festival "Beyond The End Of The World" which took place in Sarajevo from 23 October to 3 November 1993. The festival program itself comprised and showcased a large number of SAGA films that have so far been seen by audiences in the US, Canada as well as many European countries. In addition to these, five films from the SAGA Production were premiered at the festival. SAGA has placed its potentials in the service of the future film art and industry in Bosnia and Herzegovina. A large number of young people now are working as volunteers in SAGA receiving their first knowledge in film SAGA has also offered its services to the Academy of Performing Arts and the new class of film students, enabling newcomers to achieve first hand practical experience. SAGA PRODUCTION: Sa Life" Since the beginning of the state of siege, SAGA's team (about 40 people) has made a pictorial newspaper. These documents have been compiled under the title of "Sa Life" and constitute an almost inexhaustible resource for programs. These documents are shown regularly in Festivals all around the world. SARAJEVO: A Street Under The Siege" Since autumn 1993, SAGA has realized in cooproduction with the "Point du Jour", a chronicle called "Sarajevo A Street Under The Siege". This daily two minute program always filmed in the same street, is retransmitted the very same day on several channels. "Man God the Monster" The biggest SAGA project in this period is feature film entitled "MGM - SARAJEVO" which is made out of three video documents realized separately by Ismet Arnautalic, Ademir Kenovic, Mirza Idrizovic, Pjer Zalica. The 35mm allowed the film to be presented during the Fortnight's Directors days (at his invitation) in the Festival of Cannes in Nay 1994. "Perfect Circle" On the other hand, SAGA is engaged in the development of a feature movie which will be filmed is Sarajevo. "Pefect Circle" was written by Abdulah Sidran and Ademir Kenovic and will be directed by Ademir Kenovic. The project is directly supported by French Ministry for Culture, Foundation CNC, EuroImage as well as by TV channel ARTE. It will be made in coproduction with SAGA -Sarajevo and SCARABEE - Paris (in main coproduction relation) as well as with HILIGARD -Holland and a Hungarian production company. The goal is to transcend the standardization of documentary pictures through a fiction. PUBLICITY MATERIAL The video, called "SA-LIFE" (SA stands for Sarajevo) united the urgency of evening news with the macabre plot turns of horror film... outstrips anything seen on television." "Mr. Kenovic's film is hand-held view from ground zero of the war civilian victims, as shoot by video makers from all major ethnic and religious groups working without press passes, armed scorts of flak jackets and creating haunting, if technically erratic, affidavits of sudden death in Sarajevo." NEW YORK TIMES Surpassing all horror films, these documents describe the daily martyrdom of Sarajevo with the brutality of a non- filtered reality undiluted by the great official propaganda organs or television news. LE MONDE This is part of chronicle, and whether it's boring or not, melodramatic or not, or moving or not, it must be shown." WERNER HERZOG Going to the movies has always been my greatest escape from life, its boredom and horror. But Sunday night life caught up with me at the movies. Bosnian filmmaker Ademir Kenovic had somehow made it out and would be shoving a collection of videos at the San Francisco Film Festival documenting nightmare in Sarajevo. SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS Watching the "ethnic cleaning" of Bosnia on TV, it's impossible to fully absorb the horror of that situation. A filter goes up when we see war atrocities on a TV screen - a protective shieldthat reminds us we're safe, insulated from the madness... Looking into Kenovich's mournful eyes and hearing first-hand his description of Sarajevo today, one understands for the first time what life is like in the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina." SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE These films are not just meant to save Bosnia, they are made to help save the rest of the world from these terrible states of mind..." THE BALTIMORE SUN A sense of urgency permeated a harrowing program videos presented by Bosnian director Ademir Kenovic. "I am awfully sorry to be gloomy," said Kenovic, as he introduced the 80-minute lineup of work produced by film pros, students, and artists, many still living in Sarajevo. Each of the seven videos Kenovic presented, culled from roughly eight hours of material, was desperately surreal." THE VILLAGE VOICE I would like to say it's privilege for me be given the opportunity to speak about work that Ademir Kenovic and the entire SAGA crew has done here. They are not the only people who have joined the battle for the defense of Sarajevo by using culture as a defensive weapon, but they are certainly amongst the most prominent of those people, the most courageous, and I would say also, the most modest. Ademir has been for me not only a close personal friend during the time of the siege of Sarajevo, he has introduced me to the city, to many of the most courageous and noble people of the city, and he's made a great deal of difference to me in my coverage of the siege of Sarajevo and to, thus, my ability to tell through the pages of the New York Times what has happened here. It is not by any means universal amongst the people who could have come to the defense of this city that they did. Speaking as a westerner and as a foreigner I share the feelings of regret, I would say almost shame, at how little has been done by the international community to sustain this city in its hour of need. Even as we speak the city is still under the most severe siege that Europe has seen since Leningrad fifty years ago, and I would hazard one of the most severe sieges in the history of Europe. There are twelve, perhaps fifteen thousand people dead in the soccer stadiums and graveyards of this city, another fifty to sixty thousand wounded, many of them so severely wounded that many of them will never walk or function normally again, and I believe that we in the West had the power to stop this. Somebody said, I'm not quite sure who, maybe it was Edmund Burke, that for evil to triumph it is necessary only for good men to do nothing. In this case, we in the West were the good men. We didn't exactly do nothing but we certainly didn't do anything like enough to stop this tragedy. We left in essence Sarajevo to defend itself. People like Ademir and his colleagues, Serbs and Muslims and Croats and Jews and Slovenians, people who represent what this city stands for, what this city has been for five hundred years, they were not found wanting when this challenge arose. The example that they have given, I think, shames those who have chosen not to stand up at this time but stands as a shining example to everybody, to all of us, and I think that the people of Sarajevo, the people of Bosnia, and all people in the arts around the world can be proud of what they've done. JOHN BURNS (Pulitzer Price winner), Sarajevo August 16th, 1993 AWARDS GLOBAL VISION & SAGA PRESENT in association with SA-LIFE of Sarajevo GROUND ZERO SARAJEVO: LIFE IN THE CITY UNDER SIEGE ONE HOUR SPECIAL FOR WORLDWIDE DISTRIBUTION This is an inside out perspective, shot by film makers, not news reporters, offering personal points of view that are painful - but riveting. This material has just been screened at the San Francisco Film Festival, and closed this year's Cannes Film Festival at the invitation of Francis Ford Coppola. Now, for the first time, it is available in a television program that also includes a powerful interview with the gaunt but eloquent film maker who describes the details of life in hell. There is also footage showing him and his ensemble of film and video students at work in the rubble strewn streets of city under fire. In May 1993, Kenovic invited Globalvision, producers of "Rights and Wrongs: Human Rights Television," a weekly newsmagazine series, to produce a TV Special featuring these gripping films and videos for broadcast to television audiences worldwide. "SARAJEVO GROUND ZERO", a one hour special, includes dramatic footage from city under fire, personal video diaries including one from a woman who married the corpse of her lover on the day he is buried; and the confessions of a Serbian soldier who describes his role in 35 murders and 16 rapes and more. SAGA WORKSHOPS In addition to the large number of film makers, renowned film auteurs and film students, SAGA also has an ever growing number of volunteers, young people who feel their call in life is connected to the art of film making. Perhaps the most precious knowledge is that which is acquired through experience and work, as in the old days of apprenticeship, through direct contact with older colleagues. But, with all due respect to these traditional values, SAGA leaves nothing to chance. Conscious of the fact that we are now setting the foundations for our cinematic future, we have decidedto introduce a new way of working with our young members. Our endeavors are being channelled into a program we've christened SAGA WORKSHOPS. Nearly everyone from SAGA is involved, as well as a number of eminent guests. Professor Mehmed Aksamija from the Academy of Fine Arts holds lectures on the subject of Theory of Frame Composition (in the meantime prof. Aksamija fell victim to the SAGA "virus" and has filmed and edited a film of his own. Nuno Arnautalic instructs younger colleagues on the use of our technical equipment, especially the editing desk. Alongside these, we are training our members in the use of the computer, the ubiquitous equipment of our age. In September we organized a week-long Documentary Film Workshop which is run by Dana Rotberg, film director from Mexico who taught at a number of renowned film schools around the world. We are also planning a workshop dedicated to the THEORY AND PRACTICE OF FILM EDITING, to be run by Zijo Mehic, a professor at the Academy of Performing Arts. In the near future we aim to organize lectures on the theory of information, aesthetics, history of art, history of film, drama, literature... Even though every single working day at SAGA is packed full with various production duties filming and editing, we still manage to find the time and room for this segment of our activities and we are certain that this is equally important as the documentation of the cruel reality we live in, for both find their purpose and meaning in the future that lies ahead.

Message 2 FRom:Ratko Orozovic TO:Everybody in the world I am an artist, movie director and an author.I was born in Sarjevo, but I consider myself as the citizen of the world.I am 51 years old, married , have two children.All my life I have been dealing with humor.I directed 365 programs and 20 documentary programs. I am asking the world to bring back peace, order and work here in this territory. We were one big happy family, but unfortunately the marriage turned out to be a failure. There is no divorce, but the children are suffering, and there is a need for help. The world has to make us make up. There is still love in all of us. I made my living from art but the politics are teaching us to die, so I want to say that one day I am going to make a new party which will be called "Peaceful United Nations".I am calling all of the people round the world to join us and in that way we can chase away the war from this country. FROM: tabakovic TO: Vera Bogdanovic, Harksfeider 26/1, Hamburg 20065, Deutschland Dear Vera, I received your letter and I answered right away, but then I got this opportunity to reach you in this way I congratulate you and your husband Vlado on the wedding of your daughter and Dejan. Miro brought me the tape of the wedding and I saw it. I am very glad about that I recognized you right away but I didn't recognize Dejan. My son is still in Rome but unfortunately he is not working because there are a lot of unemployed people overthere.I worry about him a lot. That's it for now. Greetings from Anica and Zoran. FROM:Oscar Vidacek TO:Iva Pehar, Citluk 88260, Gradnici My dear cousin Iva! We received your package and we thank you a lot. We wrote you a letter right away and you will get it later.Many kisses and greetings from your cousin Oscar. Please write to me. FROM:Oscar Vidacek TO:Jelena Micunovic, Svetozar Radica 7, Zeleni Vijenac, Beograd Mu dear Sandra, Zoran and Lela. I love you and worry about you a lot. How are you? Have you seen Ljerka and Ljubisa? Give my regards to everybody else. Write to me. Love, your dad Oscar FROM:Oscar Vidacek TO:Ivan Vidacek, Z.P. Krivodol, near Mostar We received the package from Iva and we thank her a lot. How are all of you?I've send you a few letters bit I didn't get any answers. Write to me and don't forget me. Love to you all from Oscar * QUESTION FROM: Elizabeth Barrett The message from Alma Duran is the most powerful thing I have evr read. Please can this be published in The Guardian, it would wake so many people up to hear her talk about the deaths of her friends and her anger at the hypocritical West. I wish her and all her people the very best and will do the very little I can to draw their plight to the attention of the British. Elizabeth Barrett. FROM: duran TO: Elizabeth Barret I received your message.Thank you very much for everything that you are doing. I would be very glad if the message which I wrote is going to be published. Now to answer you on your new questions. It is very hard to feel optimistic about the future because everything here is pointing out that this war is going to continue for ages. A lot of people are also leaving the city because of that, and everybody who are staying are afraid of what is going to happen in the future. No one can predict anything. You know, one of the ways of how we survived this hell is that people become more closer and attached to each other. So I guess that I can say that here you can see and experience solidarity in a group. Now this is like a comment for what you have said about people's strength here. I don't mean to phrase myself, believe me that's the last thing I want to do, but not everyone is strong as I am. So do not think that in general peole are strong. They were before but after three years of constant horror everybody are exhausted or they are out of their minds. A lot of people are really crazy. A lot of people left and only the strongest are staying, but they are also fed up with this poor imitation which we call our everyday life. That's it for now. I hope I will be hearing from you soon! Bye, ALMA FROM: Ana Tabakovic TO:MIrela Vaskovic, Via to Vaglieri, 329-Sc-E-In.9, 00155-Roma-Italy My dear Bebuska, I have this opportunity to ask you:"How are you?".How is your health and how is Ganni? We are all well.Oscar, Vedran and I are sending our love.Zdravk was here a few days ago and he's well.How is my son Zoran? Give our regards to everyone. We love you all Anica FROM: tabakovic TO:Karmen Celigoj, 7934-State Rte.43, Kent , Ohio 44240, USA Dear Karmen and Frank. I have this opportunity to ask you how are you doing, as well as how are you and your children? How is Michael? Is there anything new at your place? I am well if you can say so -I am alive, my son is in Rome.He wanted to go Liana's place, but he was refused. Now he's trying for Canada, but there he also needs a sponsor. That sponsor can be every church , but somebody has to ask that for him. It could be also send from the USA.† So I would like you to do that if it's possible and I would be grateful to you for the rest of my life. We all love you very, very much and greet you. Ana, Anica and Zoran * MESSAGE FROM : Florian Bieber Dear Readers, my name is Florian Bieber and I am a 21 year old history and political science student in Vienna (from Luxembourg).

It is published three times a year by students from all over Europe. Unfortunatly we have not had any long term contributer from Bosnia-Hercegovina. I would be very glad find contact with an interested person in Sarajevo. In my studies and my personal interest I focus on the Balkans. It is a region, which is so much more than all the cliechee always try to make it. It really makes me cry on some days, that I never managed to go to Sarajevo, before the war started. I hear from good friend in Zagreb, Ljubljana and Belgrade that Sarajvo had the best Borek in the world, among many other more important things... I hope for your responses, Thanks in Advance and All the very Best, Yours, Florian Bieber. FROM:Sandra Jankovic and Ivonne SHoshic TO:Florian Bieber Sandra is studying journalism and Ivonne is studying agriculture and we are members of the Association of the Jewish students. Apart from that we are broadcasting a program "Radio La Benevolentia" on the Independent Radio "STUDIO 99." We would like to establish the contact with you and the rest of your colleagues. Our address is :Jewish Community, Zidovski prolaz 1, Split, Croatia (for the Jewish Community in Sarajevo-to Sandra Jankovic, radio station).We expect your letters. Love Sandra and Ivonne FROM:Dijana Hadzic TO:Everybody I am a housewife and I have two children.My son is 14 and my daughter is 10.My husband is constantly on the front so I am alone with my children at home most of the time.I am 42 years old. I have a little baby daughter,she was born before it was meant to be and she is very ill.Right now she 9 1/2 months old.She hasn't got enough calcium and vitamins in here body, and she is on heavy medicines since she was 2 months old because of her illness. Through this action I ask somebody to help me in any way if it is possibl,becouse my baby is very ill and my husband and I can't afford her the right kind of professional help. Thank you in advance. FROM:Jeronim TO:World's high diplomacy IS THERE REALLY ANY KIND OF WORLD COMMUNITY? IS THIS THAT NEW WORLD WHICH WE ARE EXPECTING? Your excelencies! Dear gentleman! At the very end of our century world started to gather round one big idea about creating a world community, and in the epicenter of that is a human being as an individual person , a human being with his or hers human rights HUMAN BEING, HUMAN RIGHTS-those things sound so proud, don't they? This whole idea was imagined, and where else of course then, in the USA.Europe was later imagined as a living rabbit on whoom this process of new integration is to be fulfilled.And so all the way up to Bosnia , when the unity of these mutual interests was shadowed and even disturbed in realization Europe was knocked out. And the fact that Bosnia "happened" here is not important. Bosnia is a metaphor of expected condition."Bosnia" had to happen somewhere so the essence of hidden but present and confronted interests would be revealed, which are hidden like the ice berg in the water, while above the surface one can see only 1/11 of this ice berg.Bosnia is the dirty laundry of worldly and especially European community, their garbage which they are trying to put under the carpet. Is it clear to Mr. Juppe or to Mr.Kozyrev that people are really getting killed in Bosnia.Young people...

Are all the Muslims favorable towards a united Bosnia? FROM:PODRUG Elmedila TO:Martine CLARENSON Pourquoi posez-vous cette question quand l'histoire nous montre beaucoup de guerre de religion?Ce sont les serbes qui ont provoqu, cette guerre de religion pas seulement contre la religion des Bosniaques mais aussi contre l'Humanit,.Il faut que vous connaissiez beaucoup de donn,s sur l'histoire de la Bosnie et surtout sur la tol,rance des Bosniaques. Il n'y a pas du tout aucun problSmes _ props de la vie des marriages mixtes parceque ici les gens se sont m,l,s depuis toujours . A l'egard des familles s,par,es ,je peu dire que la nostalgie devient plus profonde au fur et _ meusure que cette separation est longue.Il arrive que les gens se suicident _ cause de l'impossibilit, de voir leurs plus chSres.Leur ames est souvent plein d' amertume mais pas de haine.C'est cela qui distingue les Bosniaques des Serbes. Puisque je suis Bosniaque ,vous devez me demander _ ceux qui nous attaquent. Je m'efforce de rester vivante .C'est l'unique moyen de faire quelque chose pour la paix dans la ville de SARAJEVO assiege. FROM:DRECA ZEHRA 21 years old TO:JOSE ANTONIO DEL MORAL PEREZ Comme etudiante en journalisme aussi,je repondrai a ta question. Aujourd'hui,quand nous avons obtenu un petit peu d'electricite,oui,nous avons la possibilite de lire des journaux et de regarder la television.J'ai beaucoup d'amis en France qui m'envoient des journaux,et j'ai aussi la television par satellite et je peux regarder les opinions des gens normaux (c'est a dire des gens qui n'ont pas vecu toutΠ et qui peuvent regarder objectivement).Mais avant l'arrivee de l'electricite, j'ai pu aussi ecouter RFI qui est une radio internationale. Oui, je sais ce qui se passe dans le monde peut etre mieux que toi parce que je le sens. Je comprend les problemes au Rwanda meme si ces problemes sont plus serieux qu'ici. C'est tres triste. Il faut faire quelque chose. Et moi je sais ce qui se passe en Bosnie et en Serbie mais il me semble que le monde ne le sais pas. C'est le fascisme qui se passe entre la Bosnie et la Serbie. En Bosnie les gens desirent vivre ensemble comme toujours. Et, aujourd'hui a Sarajevo il y a beaucoup de Bosniaques ( serbes musulmans et croates). Qui peut nous convaincre du contraire? Qui peut nous forcer? C'est tres difficile de vivre dans la ville assiegee, mais quoi faire? Ce ne tuer? Fuir? Laisser les Tchetniks nous tuer? Les communications ne sont pas le plus grand problemes en Bosnie. Pour qui veut entendre et savoir ce qui se passe dans le monde, il y a toujours des possibilites.

Message 3 DAY TO DAY WITH SARAJEVO RESIDENTS From March 29 to April 10, 1995, the residents of Sarajevo will have the chance to respond to questions posed to them by the Internet community. The conversations will focus primarily on aspects of daily life in Sarajevo, a city that has been under siege for three years. The teams of journalists from the World Media Network will only distribute the actual conversations that take place from day to day. But it will be up to the residents of Sarajevo to decide which questions to answer. WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTER APRIL 10, 1995? Sarajevo On Line isn't meant as a one-shot operation.

FROM: Besirevic Nina Marcela Snajdera 3 444908 TO: Rest of the world I think that people are generally tired. Everything that happens in Sarajevo can be sensational story and make someone famous in his country which is far away from mud and blood and become national hero. I personally think that those kind of peel have a need to enjoy our suffering on us and they will receive good pay for it. That is not going to help us. But, it is all human and if we could change places it would probably be the same. FROM: tabakovic TO: Hilberg Margarita 997 Madison Ave Pennsylvania, OH. 4407 USA My dear aunt.

I also direct a small charitable program called the Solidarity Project which has been sending books, recordings and video tapes to to Sarajevo. We have begun an American Cultural Center in the office of the European Student Club, in Trg Oktobra. My American students and I would like to know what kinds of musical recordings, films, and magazines the students of Sarajevo would most like to receive, so that we can donate them. (I'll be coming to teach at the University of Sara- jevo for a month this summer, so I can bring the stuff with me.) We'd also like to know about the best musicians in Sarajevo, which we know has some terrific rock and roll. Perhaps one of your groups could tour America? Vozdra! William Hunt FROM:Adil Kulenovic editor-in-chief of NTV "STUDIO 99" TO:William Hunt There is a realistic hope about reconciliation between Muslims and Serbs ,when and if the formula ( needless to say that this formula is ethical division) for Bosnia is changed.The first signs from the world and the International Community about the change of this formula have indicated the meeting of ambassador Muhamed Filipovic with Slobodan Milosevic in Belgrade.Today, a former very well known politician Ivan Stambolic is coming to Sarajevo as he was expected, with new suggestions.Seven representatives of Karadzic's parliament formed a group of Independent delegates.It is expected that very soon they are going to make a contact with the opposition on Bosnian side. Yesterday, dr. Ivan Djuric and dr.Zarko Papic arrived to Sarajevo at the invitation of "Circle 99".Tomorrow (Saturday, the 8th of April 1995.) a scientific meeting will be held under the name of "Tolerance-Democracy-Political power".Also in that occasion a magazine of free mind "99" will be promoted.The assembly of Serbian Civilian Council will be held on Sunday.The arrival of Serb intellectuals (dr.Dragan Veselinov, Nenad Chanak, etc..). from abroad as well as from Serbia is expected Kindly Yours Adil Kulenovic editor-in-chief of NTV "STUDIO 99" FROM:Parents of Edgar Ferusic TO:Edgar Ferusic, C.Putget 77-20-2a, 08023 Barcelona, Spain Dear Edgar, We are using this opportunity to wish you once more happy birthday .We wish you a lot of happiness and success in your life.Many hugs and kisses to you and your family.

Greetings Almin FROM:Aleksandar Knezevic TO:Everybody The Earth summit which was held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. accepted the global plan about confrontation with world's most urgent problems and needs ( the exhaustion of natural resources , pollution of enviroment, uneven developments , powerty, wars). This plan, called AGANDA 21, is established on the concept of maintained devolpment which doesn't provoke the conflict between economy, enviroment and society .Today Sarjevo is the place were the easiest thing to do is to set up a development on new bases, not just becouse the economy of Sarjevo sufferedd great damage rather then becouse all of Sarajevians quit with their old way of thinking , they also created new standards of values and new ways of more racional use of sources. The culture of the citizens of Sarajevo is supplying the new ground for the new development, and the experience with the development OF Bosnia and Herzegovina in the time when this country was a part of Austrian-Hungarian empire points out that B&H is a fertile ground for the reception of new technologies. During the war (at the beginning of the year 1992.)I formed my own firm (CETEOR)which is going to give services on the bases of upstanding development (development and the use of new technologies which are more efficiant for society and economy, and with whoom the exhaustion of the resources and the pollution of the ground is reduced).Together with a group of enthusiastic people at the end of the1994. I founded FONDEKO-Fondation for stimulation of sustainable development and for quality of life).I want to establish an operation with everyone who is interested-individual people,firms, ungovermental organisations and others.

FROM: Amir Telibecirevic TO: Daniel Regio 1046, N. Benton Center RD. Benton Harbor, Mi. 49022 USA University of Electric Engineering Hay Dado! How are you these days? As you can see I found a new way to send you a message. When you come to Dubrovnik, do you want to try to come to Sarajevo with your sister Vesna or only to stay in Dubrovnik for few days? I saw Aunty Mirsada when she was in Sarajevo two months ago. It was sudden meeting and she told me that you want to come to Dubrovnik, but she wasn't sure about Sarajevo. If you come here, try to find me. I am still living at the same adress you have. The girl to whom you have been talking on tha phone is my sister but unfortunally I wasn't at home. Did you receive a message from Rusmo or enybody else from ILidza. Please write me by Red Cross or anyhow. Have you received my letter in blue envelop. I just want to know did you get married and how is it at the University? Watch out for AIDS!!! Sarajevo On Line
