Searching for me, through the pages of history, I found something new: IKEA for YU!

Marija grew up in a family who still cherishes the Yugoslavian ideals. She and her family are of Serbian ethnicity but they remained in Croatia, despite pressures caused by the recent war. When she started her own family, Marija began to question her own, as well as her family’s values and to wonder whether this was an environment in which she wanted to raise her son, aged five at the time. She chose a new beginning, in a completely different setting and made a new home for herself in Sweden. This is a story about growing up, leaving the family nest and accepting one’s own system of values, as well as about forming this system within a stable and caring family.
