Gorazde is in Bosnia, is one of the UNO protected enclaves,
east of Sarajevo and south of Srebenica.
Jaume Ollé and Jarig Bakker , 9 December 1999
It is almost due east some 100 km from Sarajevo, in the
"peninsula" of the Federation entering the Republic of
Srpska. It was indeed one of the UN protected enclaves
(though that seemed not to help much at the time). Today, it is
the capital of the canton 5, called "Goradansko-podrinjski
kanton" (Canton of Gorazde and Podrinje,
this last being name of the region near Drina river - border
river through most of its course towards Yugoslavia). The city as
well as the canton are mainly Bosniak inhabited (partly due to
the war - others left), and the city suffered greatly under Serb
siege, much like more known Srebrenica.
