One Story, One World Maja: Life Lessons from a Survivor of the Bosnian War

About This Video

The Bosnian War was raging in Mostarin the early 1990’s. The citizens of Mostarhad been managing the best they could. Foraging for food, hauling water from the river, helping each other get through dark nights filled with gunfire. As though living with a war being fought outside her front door wasn’t challenge enough, Maja’s life
changed forever in the summer of 1993. A mortar shell fell in her courtyard, critically injuring her and killing six of her friends.
Her legs were shattered, her face and arm were peppered with shrapnel. Cared for in a makeshift basement hospital, her left leg was eventually amputated below the knee
without benefit of anesthesia. Without proper medication, her other injuries, including the massive injuries to her right leg festered in the mid-summer heat. She lay close to
death when she was selected to be one of three children evacuated to Croatia, then Germany and eventually, to the United States.
