Hidden behind the imposing National Museum, the Historical Museum in Sarajevo is a deeply moving, eye opening and inspiring experience. Documenting the atrocities of the Bosnian war with a touchingly impartial pathos, the simple yet affecting exhibition stopped me in my tracks and the hours spent at the museum will stay with me. For someone born in 1990, the images, artefacts and written accounts of the conflict brought home the reality that these horrors occurred within my lifetime. When this is combined with the ubiquitous scars of war which cover the country, the humility and compassion of the Bosnian people in the aftermath of their recent tragic history is all the more striking. Among young people in the UK not enough is known about this conflict and I can think of no more essential starting point than the Historical Museum in Sarajevo.
