Violence is Golden

Kathryn Quinn

A gruesome museum dedicated to the violence people do to each other has become a grim hit in Belgrade, Serbia.

The chilling exhibits include X-rays and scans of injuries or graphic surgical descriptions of medical trauma caused by severe, violent attacks.

One display shows the horrific injuries caused to a woman when her husband crushed her hand during a row.

"I wanted everyone to see what had happened to me and imagine what it must have felt like while it was happening," she said.

A spokesman for the museum said: "The museum has an educational role. It is a warning of what human beings can do to each other,"

Curator Nevena Ilic added: "Everyone knows that violence harms people in general, but the effect is stronger when you see the picture.

"The atmosphere is meant to be a little horrifying, so that people realise the evil of violence."
