Miroslava Nikic was barely seven years old when she and her family fled the horrors of Croatia's 1990s war to a refugee centre near the Serbian capital Belgrade.
More than 20 years later, she still finds herself far from home, living in a dilapidated bunkhouse in the Belgrade suburb of Krnjaca.
Since fleeing in 1991, her sister and parents "have been completely lost," said Nikic, now 29. "I was living in this bunkhouse when I finished school, and then when I married and gave birth to my three children."
