Sarajevo Brewery helped project of digitizing manuscripts of Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric

Museum of Literature and Theatre Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, with the support of the Norwegian Royal Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Foundation for the protection of historical heritage, started the project “55 years of Nobel laureate Ivo Andric – 55 years of the Museum of Literature and Theatre Arts of Bosnia and Herzegovina”, which includes digitalization of the original manuscript ‘Na Drini Cuprija” by Nobel Prize winner Ivo Andric. “Despite the passage of time and events, some things should not be forgotten. Forgetting things brings ignorance and it cannot be a herald of good news. Therefore, we are fighting against forgetting with digitalization in order to provide, not only to academic society, but to the general public and the future generations, the knowledge about his and other people’s histories and thus build a solid foundation of their future”, said Dr. James Lyon, a historian and founder of the Foundation for the protection of historical heritage, emphasizing the importance of introducing digital editions in the work of contemporary museums and added: “Digital formats must become the standard in the academic and educational institutions, and the Foundation is working on introducing digital formats with the help of visionary partners, the Museum of Literature and the Embassy Norway and with support of the Sarajevo Brewery. “
