Dobrak, BOSNIA HERCEGOVINA

Ramiza jokes with her Serb neighbour before paying him 15 euros to work her land. Ten years on from the Srebrenica massacre, she is among the 5,000 Muslim survivors who have returned to reclaim their former homes. An estimated 8,000 Bosniak (Muslim) men and boys from Srebrenica were murdered by Serb forces in July 1995. The returnees face many problems, including lack of livestock and equipment to raise their income above that of subsistence level, without which they cannot persuade the younger members of their families to return. They even have to pay their Serb neighbours, who they suspect of stealing their tractors during the war, to plough their fields.
