Rebuilding Mostar

Liverpool University Press

This chapter discusses the work of the German federal emergency organisation Technisches Hilfswerk (THW) in Mostar. It focuses on the repair of buildings and flats covered by two different programmes. One programme, subdivided into several phases, dealt with the distribution of building materials to families, to allow the repair of their dwellings. Approximately 3700 families were helped between August 1994 and August 1996. The other one, the so-called ‘ad hoc measure programme’, tackled various interventions and covered approximately 2800 cases.
