Castles in the Air

Miroslav Sikavica

Mr. A comes from Somalia, a war-torn country ruled by fighting, hunger and pirates. Miss F was raised as a Sunni Moslem in secular Turkey. She was sexually harassed in the past and has converted to Judaism. Mr. B was one of the organizers of February 2007 protests against the UN envoy Maarti Ahtisari’s plan for the solution of the status of Kosovo. The police res- ponded with tear gas and rubber bullets. The three of them had to leave or flee their respective countries. They now live in the asylum-seekers’ center in Kutina, spending months of uncertainty awaiting the solution of their asylum applications.
