Bosnian Immigrants: Opportunities and Challenges

A presentation by by Aisa Purak

Sunday, July 15, 2018 • 2:00PM

Greece Museum, 595 Long Pond Road, Greece.

Aisa Purak will discuss her book, “Bosnian Immigrants: Opportunities and Challenges,” which studies a sample of 100 Bosnian families who immigrated to Rochester and found a way to adapt to life in the new society. These Bosnians still face cultural and religious challenges, even after over two decades living here. The book is about the journey of Bosnian Muslim refugees coming to America and their struggles in making a life in America.  Aisa Purak was born in the small village of Jastrebac in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a refugee from Bosnia, she came to Rochester and started working with the Bosnian community, primarily with women and children.
