Living in a country which has not lived through war, these images were so thought provoking, particularly when the war ended 22 years ago.

Thank you for the review, Julie! That is exactly our goal, to make people think. One doesn't have to be from a country that experienced a war to know that war is a horrible thing.

Thank you Romain for taking the time to visit our museum and write a review! We are not a history museum, but it is sometimes just enough to look at photos of civilians to understand this very difficult period of Croatia's history.
