In what probably seems another lifetime, home for Dubrvka and Zdenko Moro and their daughter, Vanesa, 23 and son Marjan, 21, was the city of Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where they lived until war broke out in the region in 1992.

“When it started, we moved the family to Germany, where we stayed for seven years. After the war ended in 1999, life was very hard, and so we moved here, with help from Catholic Charities,” Dubrvka said.
