A Speaker Series presented in partnership with the Center for Holocaust & Humanity Education and RefugeeConnect

Hear the first-hand account of a Bosnian refugee who was ten years old when the Serbian army confiscated her family’s possessions, bombed their home, and transported them to concentration camps. While her father died in the camps, she and her mother managed to flee the country and begin their long refugee journey, which eventually led them to their new home in the Tri-State area.

The most recent estimates suggest that around 100,000 people were killed during the Bosnian War, and over 2.2 million people displaced, making it the most devastating conict in Europe since the end of World War II.
