The exhibit of War Childhood Museum in Washington DC, features the personal belongings, documents and the stories of children who grew up at a time of war. Among them Melina Selimbegovic who arrived in the US with little more than the clothes on her back.
这是一个年轻的博物馆,就像展览中的人一样。华盛顿特区战争童年博物馆的展览展示了在战争时期长大的孩子们的个人物品,文件和故事。梅丽娜·塞利姆贝戈维奇就曾是其中之一,她来到美国的时候除了身上穿的衣服只带了几件东西。
“We are refugees from Bosnia, we came here in 1993 and I also holds very dear an item that I will never let go. It’s a blanket that I brought with me. I brought to this country a plastic bag and a blanket and a really ugly teddy bear that I give to my daughter. But those things are still precious.
我们是来自波斯尼亚的难民,我们于1993年来到这里,我也珍藏着一件我永远不会放弃的东西。就是我随身带的毯子。刚来这个国家时我带着一个塑料袋,一个毯子和一个非常丑陋的泰迪熊,后来我把熊给了我女儿。但这些东西仍然很珍贵。

如你所见,你正在了解故事的另一面。你不会经常听到孩子的经历,但平时你会听到很多与战争有关的负面消息。而这确实强调了希望、复原力和幸存者。

也许他们看不懂上面写的东西和所表达的情感,但他们能看到芭蕾舞鞋,能看到玩具和木棍,妈妈们也可以告诉他们,孩子们经历过战争。我们应该知道这一点并记住这一点。我们不应该去打仗。
