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. firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: Book Review
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
