Up to a thousand people gathered Wednesday in Sarajevo -- the Bosnian city that survived a brutal 44-month siege during the Balkan wars of the 1990s -- to rally against the carnage in Syria."Here in Sarajevo, we must do everything in our power to show to [Syrian] people that we understand them and to call on humanity to wake up and raise their voices against war," Eli Tauber, the leader of Bosnia's small Jewish community, said.Participants recalled their own suffering and the sense of having been abandoned by the rest of the world during the 1992-95 interethnic war that left 100,000 people dead and another 2 million homeless.
