Collaborating for Peace

As war raged in Yugoslavia, Sarajevo residents braved the bitter winter of 1992. As their country fell apart traumatically, a group of forward-thinking, multi-ethnic historians from Yugoslavia and other nations came together in Germany to write curriculum for the high school classrooms that would emerge after the fighting ceased. They knew it would be a difficult sell, and it was. But their hopes for history teaching have borne remarkable fruit.
