In the painful breakup of the former Yugoslavia, the city of Sarajevo was encircled and besieged for close to 4 years. When the siege ended just over 10 years ago, constant shelling and sniper fire killed 10,000 inhabitants and wounded 50,000 more. FAMA International, a Sarajevo-based publishing house, has created a hand-drawn map showing the besieged city surrounded by guns, tanks and snipers. The 875 kb file is freely available for download and viewing. An extensive online text legend explains the significance of features and locations. Altogether, it creates it a disturbing picture of 4 years of uncertain life for the residents of Sarajevo.

Thanks Joe.
