I Had a Mummy Too: War Traumas: A Psychoanalytic Experience in Bosnia-Herzegovina
About the Book
"But a grenade blew her to bits. I also had a brother. But a grenade blew off his leg. I wonder if one day my daddy will appear. What's the point of a dream.

The child could have been Afghani, Israeli, Palestinian, or Iraqi, because war injuries of the body and soul know no boundaries. In 1994, the war was in Bosnia, and this book is an account of how psychotherapists from Bosnia and Italy struggled with the psychological trauma in women who had suffered rape, torture, death of husbands and children, and loss of cultural identity.
