Contact Sarah Schneider

Thursday, July 16 | 4:00 PM | Zoom
Presented by the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center

On July 16, Bosnian genocide survivor Mirsada Kadiric will share her life experiences and reflect on what it means to be an American from the perspective of a refugee resettling in the United States. Kadiric was born in Bosnia and fled to the United States as a war refugee when she was sixteen years old. She will share the challenges and opportunities of coming the U.S. as a teenager, and her thoughts about the country we can create together today.

Kadiric is passionate about sharing her experiences with the public and mentoring refugee girls through RefugeeConnect. She also wrote a 2018 book about her experiences: I Am a Refugee: Finding Home Again in America. Kadiric serves as a Board Member of the Holocaust & Humanity Center, where her story is featured in the Humanity Gallery.
