Children of Atlantis

Edited by Zdenko Lešić

The many young people who have fled the former Yugoslavia in the face of war, nationalism and the draft here describe the circumstances which drove them to leave their homes and the way they see their future.

Children of Atlantis offers a snapshot of virtually a whole generation of young people on the threshold of their working lives, uprooted from the world in which they grew up, confronting the task of making something of their lives in the face of the catastrophe that has overwhelmed them, their families, their friends and their homeland. Their voices are varied, expressing pain, anger, uncertainty, hope and the positive energy of youth. What they have in common is a sense of disbelief and bewilderment at the forces unleashed in what was their country.
