Memory Walk” is a film workshop implemented by Youth Initiative for Human Rights BiH (YIHR BiH) and the Anne Frank House (AFH) from the Netherlands. It was organized in neighbouring cities Sarajevo and East Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and in Munich, Germany, in 2013 and 2014 respectively.
During five days, young participants – from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Germany – set off together on a discovery journey, aiming to explore and document monuments in their immediate surroundings. Together they learned more about these – often competing –public memories of World War II and the wars waged in the 1990s. In addition, by interviewing passers-by they created short documentary video clips presenting biographies of monuments in Sarajevo, Pale and Munich.
These clips were presented during several public screenings.
