Since she was a little girl collecting firewood has always been essential to Razija Aljić (54). This made her make a living and to weather long and cold winters in remote Bosnian landside.

After the war, following the return to their pre-war house in the village of Lukavica Rijeka in Doboj municipality, the circumstance got very wicked and the family’s tragedy took its course:

In 1996 Razija has lost her 19-year old son Nedzad in a landmine incident near their house. Only two years later her husband got killed in another explosion. In summer 2011 Razija’s second son Yusuf and his brother-in-law were fatally wounded by a landmine explosion and died in the forests. Ruzmir (19) is Razija’s only remaining son.

During the interview he points out that in order to support a living for his family he will soon go back to the forests.
