Making It Through

Bosnian Survivors Share Stories of Trauma, Transcendence,  and Truth

by Demaris S. Wehr PhD

“The wisdom of the narrators in this volume is wisdom that seems particularly apt and necessary at this moment in history.”
—Mpho Tutu van Furth
coauthor with Desmond Tutu of The Book of Forgiving

Imagine the most cherished places of your childhood overrun by unspeakable atrocities—villages shelled, snipers killing neighbors in the village square, libraries burning, parents sneaking children through tunnels in the middle of the night, rape, murder, and torture. This was the reality of “ethnic cleansing” in the Balkans in the 1990s. In Demaris Wehr’s riveting new book, eight Bosnian survivors tell in their own words how they “made it through” by holding on to universal values like forgiveness, humility, integrity, and faith.

“There is only one certainty – nothing can put out the light.”

— Carl Jung
