For children who experience war, trauma can cut deep, reshaping every part of their lives.
While we hear news reports from war zones, stories from survivors don’t often include children’s voices.
The War Childhood Museum is a unique place, dedicated to creating a space for those affected by war as children to tell their stories and donate items of significance.
The museum collects and preserves the stories of both adults, describing their experiences as children, and of children currently living with war.
The museum houses audio, video and objects from World War II to the current war in Ukraine – a collection that spans both the globe and time.
NPR’s Adrian Ma speaks with Jasminko Halilovic about growing up in war torn Bosnia, and dignity and resilience of children facing war.
