Yousafzai’s bloodstained garments will be displayed in the Nobel Peace Prize Exhibition, an annual display featuring the life or lives of the year’s Nobel Peace Prize laureates. The 17-year-old Pakistani education advocate shared the honor this year with Indian activist Kailash Satyarthi, for their work in children’s rights.
Yousafzai told the Nobel Peace Center in an interview why she wanted to display her bloodstained uniform:
Bente Erichsen, Executive Director of the Nobel Peace Center, said Yousafzai’s family had kept the uniform since the Taliban attempted to assassinate her in Oct. 2012 on her school bus. Exactly two years and one day later, Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Yousafzai and Satyarthi will open the eight-week exhibition on Dec. 11 at the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway.
