When I first came to Ježevac in 2016, a refugee camp near Tuzla in Bosnia and Hercegovina, I was convinced that that was the last refugees camp in the former Yugoslavia region which is still populated by displaced persons from the time of the Yugoslav wars in 1991 and 1992. But it isn’t. Ježevac, which was built as a temporary residence to house predominantly widows from Srebrenica in 1994, is just one of the many collective centers in Bosnia and Hercegovina. Now, in 2020, there are supposed to be around a hundred of them. These are official numbers.
A story without an end.
