(E) Letter to Los Angeles Times by Hilda Foley

The review mentioned was printed in the L.A. Times Book Review section by
the UK Telegraph film critic, so I sent my short letter to both
newspapers. It is not a big deal, but I just could not resist replying to
such stupidity.

Subject: Book Review

Dear Editor:

In his review of "Sundance Sarajevo" film critic Tom Shone writes about
Sarajevo "....You mean like figuring out why the Yugoslavs, having
survived the world's longest siege in modern history, ..." 
I don't believe the inhabitants of Sarajevo would appreciate being called
"Yugoslavs". They are Bosnians, of the internationally recognized country
of Bosnia-Herzegovina and it was the Yugoslavs, meaning Serbs, who were
doing the besieging of Bosnia's capital Sarajevo for four terrible years.

    Dear lady Hilda & Sirs, It is like 'normal' that common Americans do not know a history, special Balkan/Yugoslavia history, due ex YU history was written/described by Serbian sight. The Serbians sight show always Serbians as antifascist and US/UK aliens and show Croats as Nazi-fascist colaborators.
    The best explanation of this done into the book of American writter dr. Cohen Philip J. "Tajni rat Srbije, propaganda i manipuliranje povije¹æu" - sorry don't know origin title.
    Sincerely yours,capt. Josip K. Santic
