Cold Peace in the Balkans

Wednesday, 20 March 2013, 4:30pm - 6:00pm, IWM library
Winston Churchill was right when he said that the Balkans produce more history than they can consume. Traveling cities like Mostar, Vukovar, or Skopje journalist Stela Jelincic poses the question when these places of “cold peace” will warm up and heat the soup of simmering conflicts again. Stating that “our identity is our problem and our task as well” Stela Jelincic will take a closer look on the consequences of the “culture of war” for present and future generations who grow up with school books that can be read as another preface of war.

Stela Jelincic is Writer and Journalist, Lider Press (Zagreb); currently she is Milena Jesenská Visiting Fellow at the IWM.
