Bosnia-Herzegovina: Making people out of numbers

Srebrenica Genocide Blog posts a list of 534 people with birth dates killed during the 1995 Srebrenica massacre, recently identified by modern DNA-technique, restoring some dignity to the victims, and making people out of numbers.

    moja duso je kuce

    please could you translate this in to english please

  • Dear Jess,

    My knowledge of the South Slavic languages is quite rudimentary, but if still making a guess, I would say something like “my soul is beating” as I believe “moje srce kuca” means “my heart is beating. Still, I have a feeling that the original text is not correctly written. Good luck with finding out the correct meaning!

      I believe the original text could be “Moja dusa je kuca” which means “My soul is a house”
