IF: Pretend


When the Cellist was playing outside the whole family would gather at the window and for a minute they could pretend that there is no war
an illustration to the story called "The Cello of Mr. O" unfortunately I could not find the name of the author

I always loved this piece! For the absence of the real reference you probably should have retold that (anecdotal) Sarajevo story

Could this be the original story:
The Cellist of Sarajevo
