The War Childhood Museum presents #ChildrenAndGenocide, a global online campaign and exhibition realized together with the Humans of Amsterdam platform and the Srebrenica Memorial Center in July 2020. This campaign features the portraits, personal belongings, and stories of 14 people whose childhoods were marked by the Srebrenica genocide.
The WCM’s mission is to document and present the personal stories of those whose childhoods were affected by war. With the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide approaching, we partnered with the Srebrenica Memorial Center to document the experiences of children in Srebrenica. We then invited the team behind Humans of Amsterdam, one of the leading European storytelling platforms, to help us to present these experiences to the wider public. Across its social media channels, Humans of Amsterdam has over 500.000 followers from all around the world, and its founder, photographer Debra Barraud, worked with our team to produce this series.
Over the course of ten days, while doing field work across BiH, we once again met with 14 survivors who had the courage to share their stories with us.
The campaign will be shared on the social media channels of both the WCM and the HoA, starting on Monday, 6th July 2020. We aim to reach millions of people across the globe with this campaign.
