New Books

 Dear friends of Gema Gallery,

We would like to tell you about our publications which will soon be available for purchase. First is The Soul of a Synagogue which tells stories about the history and heritage of Jewish architecture through the pictures made by Libor Teplý, a prominent Czech art photographer.

On the occasion of a retrospective exhibition in the GASK (Central Bohemian Gallery in Kutná Hora), an engaging monograph by the artist Václav Bláha will be published in the spring of next year.

Already before Christmas, you can look forward to Dr. Pavla Hromádková’s book titled Jídlo pomůže, když doktor nemůže (Food Can Help Where the Doctor Can’t) featuring illustrations by Radek Fiala, a graphic artist from Brno. This is the author’s second book after “Kdy nejet na pohotovost” (“When Not to Go to ER”), which was published by Gema Art in 2013. There are many dietetic trends in the world today and patients are often asking what the real deal with food is and what they can really trust. The author tries to answer a number of questions she is frequently asked in her medical practice.

Edo Jaganjac: The Princess of Sarajevo

In the summer of 1993, the eyes of the whole world were fixed on the story of a small girl called by the BBC "The Princess of Sarajevo." The five-year-old Irma Hadžimuratović was severely injured during the Siege of Sarajevo. The girl was taken to a hospital into the care of a young surgeon, Edo Jaganjac, who was determined to do his utmost to save her life. He had to face inhumane conditions in the besieged, sniper-infested city, and treat people in a hospital where conditions were far below even the most basic standards of care. Surprisingly though, his hardest battle was fought with the unwilling, incompetent, uninvolved and sometimes almost malicious bureaucrats and international officers – the so-called peacekeepers. Uninterested in politics, let alone the war, but determined to help his fellow citizens survive the war and its atrocities, Edo Jaganjac has written a memoir so strong it will leave a lasting impression in the reader's mind.
This international scandal resulted in the UN commencing one of the largest medical evacuation operations dubbed "Operation Irma". Hundreds of lives were saved by the airlift. All of these stories are featured in this bloody Sarajevo tale – an honest and heart-breaking testimony of a man who with steady hands but shaken heart tilted at windmills and fought the good fight for the most humane of reasons, more valuable than any military goal – he fought to save a human life.
