Novi list - Croatia | Friday, August 21, 2015

Croats know what it's like to flee

The Foreign Minister of Serbia Ivica Dačić said on Wednesday that once Hungary's border fence is completed Croatia could become a new destination for refugees on their way to Europe. The centre-left daily Novi List reminds the Croats of their own past as refugees: "Such things are quickly forgotten, but during the times of conflict in former Yugoslavia little Austria took in 160,000 refugees from this region, 110,000 of whom stayed on permanently. The same was the case with Germany, Scandinavia, Canada and other countries. Many Croats live and work abroad who left not just because of the war, but also to try their luck elsewhere for political and economic reasons. … Many Croatian families know how hard it is to go abroad."
