Sunday, September 16, 10:15 am. Sunday Service. Presentation: Sarajevo!  sarajevoPresentation by CCUUF board member Anne Sigleo. Sarajevo, founded in the 15th Century, was long a trade crossroads and a haven for Muslims, Serbs (Serbian Orthodox), Croats (Roman Catholic), and Jews.  Tragically, after the death of Tito and the end of communism, tribal frustrations exploded with each group fighting for dominance. The breakup of Yugoslavia threw Sarajevo into chaos in the early 1990s. After a three and a half year siege and major destruction, most of Sarajevo has been rebuilt. Although some older people miss communism, the younger generation is embracing their former religions and trying to reclaim a spirit of religious and ethnic tolerance. Anne and Walter stayed with a local family, toured historical sites, and will share their learnings.
