November 2021 marks the 26th anniversary of the Dayton Peace Accords!

Dayton is forever connected to Bosnia-Herzegovina, as the peace process occurred here which brought an end to the brutal war of 1992-1995. But the end of war does not necessarily mean peace: There has never been a better time to look back on the root causes of the war, and its pressing lessons for us all today.

For the 25th commemoration, we published much of our physical exhibit as a NEW, INTERACTIVE online version you can browse from home! This digital exhibit, in response to COVID-19, was made possible in part by the Dayton Rotary Club. Thank you!
