Great post on Strange Maps dealing with the 20th century history of Sarejevo.

The post is certainly interesting in general.  One part that resonated with me was their application of the term “Urbicide” — the killing of a city.  Examples given were Sarejevo, Gaza, and New Orleans.  Lovely to see the language evolve, eh?

I hope NOLA won’t go that easily- labeled or not.

Herbicide? I thought we stopped using that stuff ages ago. I only buy organic anyhow.

but where is the entry from Sophicle’s Birfday party???

Urbicide is what the intention was in Sarajevo – I agree it is most interesting write up

Something to say?
