The beautiful National Library in Sarajevo was destroyed in 1992 by Serb forced and with it over 700 manuscripts and incunabula as well as most of the books. It rose again in 2014 showing us all that books and knowledge are always worth protection and love.
Happy #WorldBookDay! The lovely thing about books is that they don't just take us away to different worlds but they serve as lessons to teach us even of the most painful parts of history.
We are thankful for the role that books play in allowing survivors to speak truth to power.
