How the post-war generation in Bosnia and Herzegovina faces the past

Bosnia and Herzegovina is home to three ethnic groups that have been at the heart of one of the deadliest conflicts on European soil since World War II. Twenty-seven years after that war, Selma and Danilo, who belong to different ethnic communities, talk about what it means to build a future in a country that has not fully faced its past.

Selma and Danilo belong to two of the three ethnic groups making up the population of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Even today, ethnicity is closely linked to religious denomination: this Balkan country is home to Bosnian Muslims, Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats.

Following the dissolution of Yugoslaviathe groups fought a civil war: between 1992 and 1995, 100,000 people died and millions were displaced.

The past, with its convictions for genocide and war crimes, still cast a shadow over the unity of the country. The ENTR team traveled to Sarajevo and Banja Luka to meet the post-war generation left to build their country’s future without sharing the same version of the past.

ENTR is a digital space for open discussion about what really matters, what holds us back, and what connects us all.

ENTRANCE exists in 6 languages: English, French, German, Polish, Romanian and Portuguese.
