Editor Radmila Manojlović Žarković, who helped to conceive the “I Remember” project, was able to produce only a handful of copies of the orgininal Sjecam Se—scrounging paper and professional help under wartime conditions. A lawyer who had worked in the culturally diverse city of Tuzla, she came with her two daughters to Belgrade as a refugee. She continues to live there and works for the feminist anti-war group Women in Black (founded in 1991).

 

 

 

BOOK

I Remember 

Edited by Radmila Manojlović Žarković

Originally published by Women in Black in Belgrade, I Remember is a collection of short memoirs in prose and poetry written by Bosnian women refugees and accompanied by their drawings. The book is a testament to the strength of these thirty-two women of all religions, ages and ethnic backgrounds, and to their commitment to a multi-ethnic society. As in the original, each of the writings appears handwritten, as well as in Serbo-Croation, Spanish, Italian, and English. Aunt Lute has tried to replicate, as much as the means of mass production allows, the look and feel of the original handmade book (of which only 50 were made because of wartime disruptions).

Bringing revolutionary queer women, women of color, and underrepresented voices to the forefront of literature since 1982.
