Timed to coincide with the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict in London on 10-13 June, the British Embassy in Zagreb opened a photo exhibition entitled #TimeToAct at Kino Europa in Zagreb. The shocking photographs show survivors of rape in BiH and Rwanda, as well as the testimony of a victim of the war in Croatia, from the book Suncica. Ambassador David Slinn said that the testimony of these survivors provided a painful yet motivating reminder of why we should all work to end sexual violence in conflict and why the Summit in London must succeed.
