Sablasno selo podno Bjelašnice

Fotografije Ledića, sela kojeg još uvijek progone duhovi prošlosti.

Saturday, 6 April, 2013

Ove fotografije prikazuju Lediće, pravoslavno planinsko selo čiji su stanovnici protjerani 1992. godine, na samom početku rata u BiH.

Kada su Bošnjaci iz susjednih sela napale Lediće, mještani su pokušali pobjeći. Neki su u tome uspjeli, ali 24 civila su ubijena. Niko još nije odgovarao za ovaj zločin.

Osim Obrena i Dragice Miovčić, para koji se nakon rata vratio da obnovi svoju kuću, selo je danas prazno. Lokalne vlasti nisu obnovile kuće uništene 1992. godine.

Surova planinska klima otežava život u selu, naričito zimi, pa taj dio godine bračni par Miovčić provodi kod svoje djece u Sarajevu.
