A New Reality, A New Clientele

  • Kenneth Morrison


The Holiday Inn reopened in late June 1992, by which time the siege of Sarajevo had begun. This chapter focuses on the fate of the journalists still in the city, their eventual withdrawal from it in May 1992, and their return the following month. The author also provides an overview of how the hotel was brought back into a functioning state and why, despite its exposed position, the hotel became the city’s only press hotel, albeit one located directly on the frontline.
