Reading & discussion as part of NDR Kultur Der Norden liest | Moderation: Alexander Solloch (NDR Kultur)

"This is the story of my childhood and my war." The two are inextricably linked, like the Bon Jovi song that was just playing on the radio and the detonation of the first bomb.
Tijan Sila was ten years old when the war began in April 1992, in the midst of pop and post-communism. He can still remember the smell of detonated explosives to this day. While Sarajevo is in flames, the boy he was then becomes a young man. He wanders through the ruins of the city and collects things left behind by those who have fled and died in order to trade them for food on the black market. He learns to survive and accepts the cruel new normality.
Radio Sarajevo tells the story of people whose humanity has been abruptly taken away from them, and of what war leaves behind in the brain of every survivor.

Tijan Sila, born in Sarajevo in 1981, came to Germany as a war refugee in 1994. He studied German and English and now lives in Kaiserslautern. His first novel "Tierchen Unlimited" was published in 2017, "Die Fahne der Wünsche" in 2018 and "Krach" in 2021. He has published essays in ZEIT, taz and freitag.
