"When we were kids, we floated high above the rooftops of Sarajevo with the ropeway."

Zehra Druskić from Sarajevo (BA) provides us with an insight into her childhood memories

A gondola lift steeped in history

On April 6, 2018, Sarajevo celebrated the return of a local landmark. In welcoming a new ropeway, the city left behind one of the darkest chapters in its history and simultaneously revitalized its local mountain. The construction of the new ropeway was particularly important for the residents of Sarajevo: one of the city's most significant symbols, which was destroyed in the Bosnian War, was brought back to life. For Zehra, the new ropeway has additional meaning, because it once again comfortably transports her and her family up to the popular local mountain, the Trebević, just like when she was young. In the third video of our storytelling series "We move...,” she reminisces about her childhood and describes her personal feelings during an emotional ropeway journey steeped in history.
