During the summer of 1993, teachers at a school in the neighborhood of Ciglane organized an art project for primary school children. They encouraged the children to express their fears about the war, dreams of life before the war, and their hopes for the future.

      At the end of the summer, the teachers gave me the following pictures to take to the United States, in hopes of helping people understand the reality of children suffering in the siege of Sarajevo.

      In 2010 I donated these pictures to the Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg Florida.
