The War Childhood Museum

In just a year, a small Bosnian museum dedicated to the experience of growing up during the Balkan wars has opened its doors, won a best European museum prize and decided to go global.  The War Childhood Museum in Sarajevo, a trove of memorabilia from Bosnians whose childhood was traumatized by the 1990s war, has started collecting personal items from children affected by other wars, such as those in Syria and Ukraine. The idea was born out of the experience of the museum's founder, Jasminko Halilovic, and has become a long-term project to create the world's largest archive on the impact of war on children.  For full story click here.
