Community Contributors: Irma Ciber

Irma CiberIrma Ciber was a young girl in Sarajevo during the Bosnian War when a house fire burned her, her mother and her little sister. They were evacuated to Italy where her mother died, leaving 9 year old Irma to care for her 4 year old sister while her father fought on the battlefield and other family were held in concentration camps. In 1996, the family reunited in Fargo-Moorhead. Irma will tell us her story, why Bosnians had to leave their homeland in the 1990s, and why many of them chose to move to our community

Join us at the Moorhead Public Library Wednesday, September 21 at 6:30 p.m. for this installment of the Pangaea Series, a collaboration of community voices telling their stories relating to immigration to this area.
