Cultural Vignette 2: Healing Wounds


we had a very hard life, uh, during the war lots of Bosnian people, uh, still have carried
that burden and have that damage I was, uh, in the Constitution camp for 18 months just because I a m different religion
then they are and I was tortured every day in the camp I lost two of my brothers and uh I lost my parents and my mom died during the war and she was tortured and raped I had a couple, they’re from that opposite background, which doesn’t make any difference for me, I am interpreting for anybody but as soon as I start to the lady she
started being reluctant and she did not want to give me any answers, she did not want to cooperate the doctor explained to the patient that
we are all here for the Freedom and we are all in the room to help each other my biggest goal is to make a difference
if i can make a difference every day to somebody alive meaning helping them to understand
better to the that important chain between interpreter and the provider is my goal
