The War Bicycle keeps the Memory of Sarajevo under Siege


“If we talk about bicycles than we have to talk about the war.” – said Irfan Selman who spent the whole war in Sarajevo. His war bicycle saved his life several times during the war years in Sarajevo. He now donated his bicycle to the Historical Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

It is now a part of the permanent exhibition “Besieged Sarajevo”.

Since the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina was under siege for 1.425 days, the citizens had to find many ways to survive the hardest period of their lives.
