The Boy Who Said Nothing
by Mirsad Solakovic
The Bosnian War raged from 1992 to 1995.
During the conflict, over 300,000 Bosniak civilians were executed during a mass ethnic cleansing that was described as the worst war atrocity since WWII. Mirsad Solakovic survived these events as a child.
This is his story.
“The Boy Who Said Nothing” is Solakovic’s poetic account of the Bosnian and Herzegovinian tragedy. From his own devastating childhood experiences of war in the former Yugoslavia, to his views of hope and peace for the future as an adult, this conceptual collection of poems describes the horrific crimes which occurred across his homeland as well as his own mental struggle. Solakovic’s account of the heroes, villains, and horrors of civil war is balanced by his unique vision for the world; a true survivor’s perspective.
