The voices of our ancestors

"The voices of our ancestors"

Dubrovnik, Croatia

After a shelling a woman in the Mrtvi Zvon neighborhood said to me "We're not just talking about real estate here. These stones speak to us with the voices of our ancestors." A lot of the people who remained in Dubrovnik through the seige could trace their family history back 700 or 800 years in the city. The walls need constant attention even in peacetime. The shelling made more work for the majstori.
