Regarding the exibition “What Remains” in London, The Guardian quotes Drakulić

Writing about the exibition “What Remains” at the Imperial War Museum in London, in the article ‘Culturecide’ in war to be subject of London exhibition, The Guardian quotes Drakulić:

The loss of precious structures can be devastating, as articulated by the Croatian author Slavenka Drakulić on the destruction in 1993 of the 16th-century Stari Most bridge in Mostar during the Croat-Bosniak war. Warner said: “We expect people to die. But she wrote: ‘A dead woman is one of us – but the bridge is all of us, forever.’ Because what you are losing is any anchor you have to some sense of permanence.”
