REFUGEES In the spring of '92 the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina dec;ared independence from the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Shortly afterwards a considerable part of its population had to flee form the war which then broke out. About 100,000 of them fled to Slovenia, the northern most republic of Yugoslavia which had achieved independence a few months earlier. Trains and buses packed with people began to arrive by the thousands, and an emergency welcome programme was put into action. People were received and registered, then taken to buildings which had previously housed soldiers or workers or even tourists. These were to serve as 'temporary' refugee centres...and are still there today.
