3. MOSTAR, SANTICEVA STREET
right bank of Mostar is cut by a few longitudinal streets.
Once those were streets of the People's Revolution and its'
hero Mose Pijade. There
was also a street named after the poet Santic. Horror gradation
increased together with their vicinity to the Neretva River.
The epicentre of the conflict between Croats and Bosnians
in Mostar is the famous demarcation line upon the Boulevard
and in Santiceva Street
Inside Santiceva street
an insane, different history of the world' s warfare is written
down. This is not Vukovar, neither is it Sarajevo or Beirut.
These are not the street fights in the usual meaning of the
word. These are room battles, here you can hear your opponent
coughing and it is not necessary to yell in order to call
No-mans' land between warring parties in the ex-street of
Alex Santic is narrowed to a belt 3 - 5 meters wide. It is
the closest demarcation line seen in this war.
