(Seating is limited; early arrival is recommended.)

In the 1990s, Bosnia and Herzegovina was rocked by brutal warfare and systematic genocide that resulted in a mass exodus from the Balkan nation. Starting in 1993, thousands of these displaced Bosnians found a welcoming new home in an unexpected place: St. Louis, Missouri, where today the Bosnian population exceeds 60,000. Featuring nearly 100 images, “Bosnian St. Louis” is a groundbreaking account of a vast refugee resettlement in a single US city—and a testament to how it changed that city forever.
