Dejan Kravic to begin professional career in Europe
Dejan Kravic was 2 years old when the bombings began.
After Bosnia and Herzegovina declared independence from Yugoslavia, Mostar was subject to an 18-month siege.
His parents knew their family couldn’t stay.
“I was four and my little brother, Aleksandar, was two,” former Texas Tech center Kravic said. “Our mom, Svjetlana, and dad, Milosav, thought it was best that we leave that scene. We decided to move to Canada. They accepted us, and we’re happy with the decision.”
It was tough for the Kravic family at first.
They were 4,654 miles from home.
