“Very evocative”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was for me an important visit because it showed the story of what the people went through in the Homeland War. A lot of film was taken from British television news clips and reminded people of the coverage of these dreadful events. It put our trip into perspective and showed the determination of the people.

The photos of those who died defending their beautiful city are very moving. It gave a face (faces) to the conflict and reminds us of the cost of war.

“Quiet contemplation”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We stopped by here accidentally while walking around the old town. It was a startling reminder of how society can suddenly break down and neighbours become enemies. The pictures of those who lost their lives was sad and deserved quiet contemplation.

The pictures of the attack of the old town of Dubrovnik highlights the destruction of man where their is attempts to justify war through rewriting history while having no respect for history and historical artefacts. Try to visit if yo u are passing.
