The Cellist of Sarajevo
by Steven Galloway
During the Serbian siege of Sarajevo in the early 1990s, residents faced the danger of sniper fire and mortar attacks. One such attack killed 22 civilians waiting in line at a local bakery. For each of the following 22 days a cellist played alone in the town square, a performance for each victim.
