When we stopped in Pocitelj, buying babushkas in the stalls by the road, it was only a village with a mosque and a tower.
When, later on, I arrived at home and read something about it, I was terrified by the horrors it suffered during the war.
I don’t remember any visual signs of it, a good proof of the human capacity to recover from drama.
“In August 1993, Croat warlord Mate Boban’s troops blew up the ancient mosque, the Turkish baths, built in 1573, and the elegant houses built by eighteenth-century Muslim notables; then they rounded up the Muslim residents and marched them off to concentration camps.”
This is what I read in Internet.
In August 2006 we made a technical stop there, bought some fruit and babushkas, and honestly, locally we had no idea of that drama.
