More than 300 high school students gathered in uptown Charlotte on Tuesday to listen to Bosnian Ambassador Haris Hrle and take part in a discussion focusing on the war-torn country.

The annual “student dialogue” at the Wells Fargo Auditorium was part of the Charlotte-based Echo Foundation’s “Voices Against Indifference” program. It included three panelists with connections to Bosnia-Herzegovina: Bosnian novelist novelist Aleksandar Hemon, photojournalist Ron Haviv and journalist Elisabeth Zerofsky. Tuesday evening, Hrle and panelists were scheduled to meet with the public in a discussion and reception.
