The women of Bratunac… una storia di donne dal sapore di lampone
I just finished listening Board Zarcovick, a Bosnian woman born in a country that no longer exists. Its, a story of a massacre in which 1995 gutted a land not far from us: ex-Yugoslavia. Eight thousand people killed, for the greater men.
Women who live alone who found the strength to rise again by investing its work in the ancient cultivation of raspberries. Women living in renaissance, lavorano e producono ‘insieme’ in una cooperativa agricola.
Things read of the war that has engulfed these peoples have always upset. I'll never understand how mankind can reach thresholds such cruelty.
Well, I was involved in a movement of solidarity 300 food bloggers to help these women, giving a sense of the day March 8. The task of every blogger will be to prepare a recipe with raspberries. Accepting it was a real pleasure, partecipare un onore.
With this initiative,, the food blogger who adhere to “unlamponelcuore” intended to raise awareness of the project “raspberries peace” e la Along with the Agricultural Cooperative (coop-insieme.com), born in June 2003 to encourage women to return home after the deportation of Bratunac after the Srebrenica massacre, in which the troops of Radko Mladic killed all their husbands and their sons.
Per aiutare e sostenere il rientro nelle loro terre devastate dalla guerra civile, after ten years of residence in refugee camps, this project was born, aimed to reactivate a system of microeconomics based on the recovery of the ancient culture of raspberries and organization of families in small cooperatives, in order to reconstruct the plot of a social structure founded on mutual, on mutual support, and on the cooperation of all.
A distanza di oltre dieci anni dall’inaugurazione del progetto, the dream of this cooperative has become a living reality and vital, capable of independent living and concrete symbol of the transformation of the word “return” in the choice of “remain”.
