Sarajevo is a city where for centuries people of all faiths and origins have lived harmoniously. But war challenges that peace and turn’s friends against each other.
In 1942 the Nazis sacked the city in search of antiquities of historic and monetary value, they were in search of the Sarajevo Haggadah. As significant a document as the dead sea scrolls, the Jewish and Muslim community combine to work it’s safe passage out of the city.
Becoming a symbol of unity and peace, the story of how this ancient text bound together people fighting for their lives is inspiring, touching and resonant.
