Title Homeland lost and gained: Croatian diaspora and refugees in Sweden
Author Povrzanovic Frykman, Maja
Date 2002
Editor Al-Ali, Nadje; Kosher, Khalid
English abstract
This chapter presents the impacts that the war in 1990s had for Croatian diasporas’ homeland-related sentiments and actions, and offers insights in the activities of the Croatian community in Malmö. Central are examples of the personal narratives of Croatian refugees from Bosnia-Hercegovina. They are compared to the narratives of the Croats living in Sweden for several decades. Although people quoted are co-ethnics who occupy an equal legal position in Sweden (being Swedish citizens), their narrations on home and homeland show considerable differences.
