Read full description of the books:



FARE LA GUERRA VUOL DIRE UCCIDERE
Storie dalle retrovie delle guerre balcaniche degli anni ’90, l’altra faccia della guerra, quella che non viene raccontata dai media, dai bollettini di guerra, dalle manovre militari.



Non é un saggio, non è un reportage, e forse neppure un diario: pubblicate su vari periodici sin dall’inizio della guerra (1991), sono storie, e riflessioni che quelle storie suscitano in Drakulić.
Fisicamente lontana dalla guerra combattuta, muovendosi tra Zagabria, Vienna, Parigi e Lubiana, Slavenka Drakulić segue gli avvenimenti attraverso ciò che accade dentro di lei: sentirsi profuga, in quanto croata, a Lubiana; vedere e sentire i profughi a Vienna; notare come in Europa la guerra sia percepita lontana; trovarsi ad attraversare una frontiera prima inesistente con un passaporto ormai inutile.
Questa guerra ha imposto che un essere umano non fosse più prima di tutto un individuo caratterizzato dal suo lavoro, le sue idee, il carattere: l’unico criterio di distintivo è diventato la nazionalità, si è prima di tutto, croati, serbi, sloveni…


Dal film No Man’s Land di Danis Tanovic, 2001, Oscar al miglior film in lingua straniera

Non esistono guerre buone e belle: ma questa narrata da Drakulić appare particolarmente brutta, sporca e cattiva.
Mentre a Berlino il muro andava giù, altrove ne nascevano di nuovi, la terra aumentava le sue frontiere e i confini si restringevano, invece di allargarsi.

E noi continuavamo a coltivare il nostro campo a un passo dal filo spinato.



Non è facile saper guardare da lontano e contemporaneamente da vicino, analizzare e riassumere, entrare nel dettaglio e nel particolare senza smarrire la vista d'insieme.
Drakulić ci riesce, si direbbe che le venga naturale.

Sembrano pensieri di ogni giorno dettati da buon senso: immersi nell'orrore della guerra che li genera e determina, diventano parole scolpite nell'anima.
