Ordinary Heroes

A series of 4 x 30 minutes documentaries focusing on people who during the Bosnian war saved one another commissioned by the PCRC (Post Conflict Reserch Center) and screened on Al Jazeera Balkan. We want this series to be a positive and uplifting portrayal of some ‘good stories’ that happened in the horror of this brutal war. The Bosnian war was hell. The Bosnian war was a long time ago. The consequences of the Bosnian war are still very much felt today. Nevertheless, not all stories were bad. There were stories of heroism, help, support and defiance. People who actually went out of their way to help one another, just because they were neighbors, friends, human beings; just because they were Bosnian. These are our ORDINARY HEROES.

What is a hero? Who is a hero? Does he/she have any special skills? Does he have to be special at all…. Why are they heroes?

PCRC and “Ordinary Heroes” has won the 1st place for the 2014-15 Intercultural Innovation Award by the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the BMW Group
