Museum of War Childhood

Jasminko Halilović is the author of the project “Childhood in War”, which in June 2010 published an online call to people who grew up partly during the war to send their short answer to the question “What does a Childhood in War mean to your?”. The goal was to make a book that will present various aspects of this experience from a large number of short answers. In January, the book “Childhood in War: Sarajevo 1992-1995” was published. In February 2015, Halilovic gathered a team to create a collection of the future Museum of War Childhood . A collection of personal items, stories, audio and video testimonies, photographs, letters, drawings and other documents that illustrate the experience of growing up in the war are presented at the Museum of War Childhood. Every item shown within a museum exhibition or within guest exhibitions is followed by the story of its owner.
