If Born in Sarajevo #2

When war ends violence stays alive The roads toward peace and significance still lead nowhere Perhaps the aftermath is the b Taking up the memoir of a girl who managed to leave war stricken Sarajevo and live in America sadly we find that her life was not happy in Texas either Having been raised in a country where women were the slaves of the men the author tells us she knew no better when her boyfriends treated her badly Domestic abuse is the unifying theme of IF with an imagined crime scene to start in which the detective is weary of seeing yet another woman murdered by yet another partner This says the author is the logical conclusion for a society in which women weigh 110 pounds and men weigh 210 pounds and men believe that they can and must dominate As a reader I m wondering what all these big men are so afraid of that they have to beat up smaller weaker people Afraid of being told no perhaps That doesn t kill anyone The author would have been better off if she d found a relationship with someone from a different background to her own yet not all men could blame their behaviour on wars Having spent seven years of being belittled in front of co workers talked down to and beaten badly the author yet entered a legal marriage with this man because she wanted the joint income to bring her grandmother to America Girl just leave Her final parting was fraught but eventually the two passed as strangers on the street she having freed herself from her inherited attitude We then learn about how it feels to be an immigrant The message is that if you stay in the abusive relationship you allow it to continue When women grow up they get stronger and get out Maybe this is why some men have a series of relationships with young women Not all men behave in this appalling bullying fashion and we need to value the good ones IF is a read for adults and the memoir will be of interest to other survivors or those undergoing domestic abuse to women s study classes and social workers This is an unflinching memoir from a brainwashed beaten woman who turned out to be strong and beautiful For comparison I suggest Breaking Free by Abby Sher and How To Find The Right Person To Date by Celia John
