“In 2009 I was in Palestine. I wanted to see what was going on there. I joined a seminar for fifteen days organized by Global Majority, an american NGO. We visited Hebron, Ramallah, Jericho and Jerusalem. It was really amazing. It changed my life. I was also part of a Mostar NGO so I wanted to share the story of Mostar that happens to have a lot of similarities with Jerusalem. After the second world war the Jewish people of Mostar gave the synagogue to Mostar, in order to thank the city for protecting them during the Second World war. It soon became a theatre. Then, during the civil war, the Jewish people pushed our local authorities to stop the war and to sign the Washington agreement. Therefore, the city of Mostar gave them land to build a new Jewish Cultural center. You see, Mostar looks like a small Jerusalem, because within 100 meters you find a Catholic church, an orthodox one, a mosque and a synagogue. It is unique.
During the civil war, my father was wounded with 9 bullets… I try to keep good people in my environment. I dont feel any kind of hate because there will always be bad people. So I just focus on the good ones.”
