Exhibit Title: They Fight to Defend Their Country: forgotten teen soldiers of Sarajevo.

Location: Bosnia and Herzegovina

Caption: It was not unusual for girls and young women to take an active part in the Bosnian conflict.
Ramiza Variz, born 1976, from Sarajevo was younger than 16 when she and her older sister joined the BiH government army. She spent four years in the force, and was deployed to numerous front-line areas. She still bears a scar from a wound she suffered in 1993.
