A New Home

A New Home 2022

Examines the story of Bosnian War refugees fleeing to St. Louis, Missouri, which is now home to more displaced Bosnians than any other city in the world. In 1992, with the Bosnian War raging, thousands of Bosnians sought refuge in America. Chosen because of its affordable housing and available jobs, a large number of those Bosnians ended up in St. Louis, Missouri. Once there, they began assimilating, starting their own businesses, and transforming a once dilapidated neighborhood into a thriving "Little Bosnia." Over the ensuing three decades, an estimated 70,000 Bosnians have migrated to St. Louis, making it the most inhabited area for Bosnians outside of Bosnia itself. A New Home tells the story of these refugees' perseverance and determination to not only start life over but prosper. — Joseph Puleo
