Kenan Trebincevic, The Bosnia list: A Memoir of War, Exile, and Return
Kenan Trebincevic was born in a town called Brcko in 1980 to a Bosnian Muslim family who was exiled during the ethnic cleansing campaign of the Balkan War. He came to the United States in 1993, went to college in Connecticut and became an American citizen in 2001. He works as a physical therapist in Greenwich Village and lives in Astoria Queens, amid 10,000 other former Yugoslavians. His memoir, The Bosnia list, co-authored with Jewish journalist Susan Shapiro, tells his story of surviving the Bosnian war as a child and later returning to his homeland on a journey to confront his past.
