Yesterday the Mostar Bridge has been reopened in Bosnia-Hercegovina.
The 16th-Century bridge was blown up during the bitter fighting in the Bosnian war between
the city’s Muslims and Croats in 1993. Its reopening is being seen as symbolic of the healing
of divisions between Muslims and Croats.
Ine Dehandschutter rightly states:
A symbolic act, ‘crossing bridges’. Something different than ‘building walls’.
