"I hope that conversations about World War I will not focus on competing narratives of victimhood. That would be a dead end. Let's remember victims—but let's honor memory by pointing toward a positive future."

Joel H. Rosenthal, President, Carnegie Council

"The venue we have selected for this occasion is the Gazi Husrev-bey Library, the oldest continuously running educational institution in Sarajevo. Founded in 1537, with its difficult history of perseverance and survival, its educational mission makes it the perfect place for recognizing Carnegie Council's long-standing commitment to education."

Haris Hromić, Trustee, Carnegie Council
