The Br(e)aking Point

Igor M. Toholj

Milenko Džever, an engineman from Žednik near Subotica (Serbia) killed twenty three people with a train he drove. Every time he climbs up into the locomotive, he wonders whether someone will jump in front of his train or will be crossing the tracks carelessly. Although enginemen can see from their seat that someone is about to get killed, there is nothing they can do. Thus they become executioners against their will. Sometimes whole families find themselves in front of a train, or groups of people in cars.
