World number 74 Damir Dzumhur has been named as the ambassador of the Museum of War Childhood in Sarajevo. The Museum is expected to be opened in the following few months and currently has 3000 items in its collection.
Jasminko Halilovic, founder of the Museum, says it makes him ''very happy'' knowing that Dzumhur is the Museum's first ambassador. Halilovic also noted that the 24-year-old Dzumhur belongs to ''their war generation'' and they want to ''promote professional sport''. ''Among other things, we want to say that peace has no alternative and that the future is in the sport, in this example, in museums and on the tennis courts,'' added the Museum's founder.
The 74th-ranked player in the world thanked to Halilovic who ''recognized him as one of the ambassadors,'' and added: ''Many of you already know that I was born in 1992 in the war, and thank God I do not remember these things, but I’ve heard a lot of things and there is a connection.''
