Jovan Divjak was a Commander of the Territorial Defence in Sarajevo when the war in Bosnia began. In April 1992, he stayed in Sarajevo to be part of the multi-ethnic ABiH, defending the city and its civilians.
Nusreta Sivac was of 37 women taken to the infamous Omarska camp in Prijedor, and subjected to unimaginable sexual violence. Nusreta has bravely spoken out about her experience and encouraged others to do the same.
Predrag Pašić was an international footballer before the war. When Bosnian Serb forces surrounded Sarajevo, he had the choice to leave the besieged city. Instead, he chose to stay and to set up a football school for children of all faiths and ethnicities.
At the age of 15, 'Mirsada' was imprisoned in a rape camp as part of the campaign of 'ethnic cleansing' taking place across Bosnia. She has shown incredible courage to survive, raise a family and now tells us her story.

There was a time when I dreamt of them—my father, my family, my friends. I would wake up in tears, but also with the warm sensation that I had just seen them, that we had spoken. Now, I never dream of them. Instead I dream only of monsters. https://t.co/Ssx3s6fi08
