Vladimir J. Simunovic was a neurosurgeon in Sarajevo, also known as “little Jerusalem”, where all of the world’s major religious communities intermingled and coexisted peacefully– or so they thought. When ethnic disputes broke out, rapidly followed by bloodshed, Dr. Simunovic discovered that he belonged nowhere and to nobody. Already under a heavy burden coping with war casualties, he struggled to protect his family, to preserve his professional integrity and to stand up for the unfortunate, the ill and the weak.For one year, he fought a battle he knew he could not win, a battle for old values, for old friendships and for pride in the city of his birth.

When his home disappeared in flames, his wife and 7-year old son were made penniless refugees, his staff, friends, and relatives looked to him expecting support, help and protection – all the things he did not even have for himself.This is a story, which will reveal to the reader how it is possible, under the most inhuman circumstances, to organize everyday life, to work in a military hospital and still maintain (mostly) high spirits.

In the course of the war Dr. Simunovic met Ministers and the highest political authorities of the country, church dignitaries, warlords, war profiteers, foreign correspondents and humanitarians, heroes and cowards, angels, saints and crooks. Three times he broke through the Sarajevo siege to protect his most-loved ones.As the author states in his foreword, this is not an account of terror, butchered and murdered people and atrocities, it is a book about love and human dignity in the most demanding of times. Using his own wry brand of humor and self-deprecation, he reflects on the madness of war, and the goodness and evil in human beings it brings out.
