War Childhood Museum Opens in Sarajevo

An exhibition of mementos of children who lived through the war has finally opened after the War Childhood Museum secured enough funding to acquire a permanent home in Sarajevo, reports BIRN. The museum at Logavina Street is the permanent exhibition space for a collection of more than 3,000 personal objects which was started by director Jasminko Halilovic in 2010. After struggling with reluctant local authorities to get enough funding, and putting on a temporary exhibit at the Historical Museum of Sarajevo, the project has finally been realized thanks to help mostly from international donors, as well as a crowdfunding drive that raised several thousand euros.
