Journey Home, The Returning Seafarers
The publication titled Journey Home, The Returning Seafarers is a catalogue issued for the exhibition on personal stories of seafarers who during the wars found themselves, for different reasons, intentionally or unintentionally, in foreign countries, far from home, and their journeys home. It speaks about the impact of historical events on the life of every individual. Although departures and returns were something completely usual as far as seafarers were concerned, the wars strongly marked their destinies and made their usual returns impossible. In the countries they had been sent to these men fought or found themselves in captivity. During their prolonged return, however, the conditions changed at home, too, where there was no more place for some of them. The catalogue presents six Navy and merchant navy mariners on their way home after World Wars I and II and after the breakup of Yugoslavia.
