The story.
At a glance.

East meets West in Bosnia and Herzegovina, with its blend of Ottoman and Austro-Hungarian histories filtered through a Southern Slavic lens. Many still associate the country with the heart-breaking civil war of the 1990s, but you are likely to remember the country for its deep, unassuming human warmth and beautiful landscapes.

Inside out.
Jewish Bosnia & Herzegovina.

After the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions, many Jews settled in the Ottoman provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The original Jewish community of Sarajevo was Sephardic, and Bosnia hosted Europe’s largest Sephardic Jewish community after Spain. According to a 1921 census, Ladino was the mother tongue of 10,000 of Sarajevo’s 70,000 inhabitants. At the eve of World War II, there were about 14,000 Jews in Bosnia-Herzegovina. About 10,000 Bosnian Jews perished during the Holocaust under the pro-Nazi Bosnian regime. When the Yugoslav Civil War broke out in 1991, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee evacuated 1,500 Bosnian Jews to Israel. Today, there are about 500 Jews in Bosnia Herzegovina, 90% of whom are Sephardic.
