Free webinar: The Place of the War Past of the Parents in Their Children's Identity

15. October, 11.00 CET: We are giving a webinar to discuss how children of war survivors make sense of their parents’ experience of war and persecution. Europe is now faced with the biggest refugee influx since the Second World War. Many of the refugees and migrants are going to settle in Europe and raise their children in the new European environment. How will this impact their children's identity? By focusing on the Bosnian-Herzegovina experience, we will give insight into this issue. More information about the webinar and speakers is available on the website.
