HaMapah\The Map was a hit in Belgrade, Serbia!

HaMapah/The Map was a huge success in Belgrade @ Dah Theatre’s “Passing the Flame Festival!” In attendance was Mother Mejra, a Bosnian Muslim woman activist, who fought to recover her son and daughter’s bones from a mass grave. She continues to do this honorable and tireless work of finding people’s remains and giving names and faces to victims of genocide in Bosnia and Herzegovina. She is an amazing woman, who exudes love (I sat weeping as she told me her story. “Don’t cry,” she said. “I am only crying because your capability to love is so deep,” I replied.) Mother Mejra does not allow fear and hate to encumber her humanity and her ability to find humanity and hope in people. What an inspiration!  — Adam McKinney, Co-Director, DNAWORKS
