For the love of Islamic books

April 3rd, 2012

The BBC has recently aired a documentary which tells the story of a group of men and women who risked their lives to rescue the Ghazi Husrav Bey Library – and preserve a nation’s history – in the midst of the Bosnian war. Amid bullets and bombs and under fire from shells and snipers, this handful of passionate book-lovers safeguarded more than 10,000 unique, hand-written Islamic books and manuscripts – the most important texts held by Sarajevo’s last surviving library.
