“Take a tissue”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Interesting and informative with some excellent photography, however, the written explanations reduced me to tears in places - needed a stiff drink afterwards.

“Moving”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I went to the War Photo Limited so that I could see the true extend of the War for the citizens of this beautiful region. I found it informative and moving but above all it showed the true extent of evil that people can inflict on each other. Highly recommend.

“Worth a visit.”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is really moving, a well set out exhibition and the story is well written and makes you understand what happened and how awful it must have been for the people.

“A Moving Experience”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

This is a must see when visiting Dubrovnik. To think of the atrocities that took place only 20 years ago. It is difficult to imagine what it must have been like living here during the war. The pictures are very moving and you cannot be anything but moved by the hardened look on the faces of the local people, especially the children. To wander down the Stradun now and to see images of it on fire and under attack is difficult to imagine.

“Harrowing”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Brutally honest, stunning photos show how little glory there is to war. Tricky to work out the chronology from the attendant literature, and challenging to get a handle on the different factions and issues involved, even from subsequent reading.
