Korneel De Rynck travels along the railway line, through Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina, along places that recall death and destruction. He investigates what happened back then and what changed since the end of the war. Do the people live together again? Did the circumstances that led to war disappear?
‘A fluently written, honest and sensitive description of the life in the post-Yugoslav countries. The book reflects the atmosphere in the Balkans back then and now excellently, respecting the opinion of every community, and with empathy for the common people with whom the author spoke. A compelling story.’ – Stefan Blommaert, Belgian TV reporter and Eastern Europe expert
