This is the story of Clare, who took in 21 refugee children – many of whom she was told were orphans – from war torn Bosnia. The local community in Elgin, Scotland rallied round to welcome them, but it was only when international schoolgirl Petra came to translate that the children were able to properly communicate and share what horrors they had fled. Petra not only gave the refugees a voice, but crucially she also uncovered the truth – that none of them were orphans and all had families they had been forced to leave behind. Clare then embarked upon a years-long battle to reunite the children with their families, many of whom still live locally in Scotland today. Now Clare wants to find Petra, in order to thank her for unlocking the truth and changing the course of the children’s lives.

In This Story: Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina
Bosnia and Herzegovina, sometimes called Bosnia–Herzegovina and often known informally as Bosnia, is a country in South and Southeast Europe, located within the Balkans. Sarajevo is the capital and largest city.
Bosnia and Herzegovina is bordered by Serbia to the east, Montenegro to the southeast, and Croatia to the north and southwest. It is not entirely landlocked; to the south it has a narrow coast on the Adriatic Sea, which is about 20 kilometres (12 miles) long and surrounds the town of Neum.
The inland Bosnia region has a moderate continental climate, with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. In the central and eastern interior of the country the geography is mountainous, in the northwest moderately hilly, and in the northeast predominantly flatland. The smaller southern region, Herzegovina, has a Mediterranean climate and mostly mountainous topography.
