Ordinary Heroes - documentary screening

Episode 3 & 4: Zoran & Azra and Jagoda & Hamdija

Ordinary Heroes is a multimedia educational project designed by Post-Conflict Research Center that utilizes stories of rescue and moral courage to promote tolerance, reconciliation and interethnic cooperation.

The Ordinary Heroes project’s multi-ethnic approach is unique to intervention strategies currently being used in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Firstly, the rescuers narratives’ represent all constituent ethnic groups, highlighting their similarities while reducing the significance of identifying perpetrators and victims. Secondly, participants are selected on the basis of maintaining a balance between constituent ethnic groups (including Bosnia’s often marginalized ‘others’ category of Jewish and Roma communities, and youth from mixed marriages). This encourages intercultural dialogue, collaboration and the building of cross-cultural bridges.


Discussion to be followed with Nevena Medic (Researcher, Post-Conflict Research Center, Sarajevo, and MA student in Department of Nationalism, CEU) and Vladimir Petrovic (Department of History, CEU)
