For the love of books

“During the Bosnian war, a group of men and women risked their lives to rescue thousands of irreplaceable Islamic manuscripts – and preserve a nation’s history. Amid bullets and bombs, this handful of passionate book-lovers safeguarded more than 10,000 unique, hand-written antique books and documents – the most important texts held by Sarajevo’s Gazi Husrav Beg Library, founded in 1537.”

Check it out.

Sadly, unless you are living in the UK, you’re not able to watch the documentary.

I don’t have priceless manuscripts, but I would hate for something to happen to my library.
