Ines Tanovic Sijercic
33 years

Ines grew up in Mostar, Bosnia. She has a Bosnian Muslim father and a Croatian Catholic mother. When the war broke out in 1992, her parents were separated, and her sister trapped in the siege of Sarajevo for three years. Ines was 9 years old when she was hit by a shell whose marks are still present on her body. Today she is fighting against ethnic divisions in her country, for a participative democracy and for the renewal of culture in Bosnia. With a group of citizens, she helped to reopen the National Museum.
