Ane Lokmic plays with her child on the stairs of a rebuilt house in Kusonje, in the mountains outside Zvornik in Central Bosnia, Republika Srpska. This was a majority Muslim village of 100 families in 80 homes that was almost entirely destroyed by extremist Serb Chetnik fighters. Three-dozen men were sent to a concentration camp in Bijeljinja and the women and children expelled to Bosnian-held Tuzla in 1992. Eight of the men were killed at the camp, and the 20 elderly who decided to remain in the village were never seen again. Some 30 families returned in 2000. Greg Marinovich/The Stand
