The article analyses how the so called “inner refugees”, dispersed in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a result of the civic confl ict in the 1990s, view “home”. The principal aim of the study rests in answering the question of how, as a result of prolongation of the period of stay of the refugees in other places, their longing for returning to their home changed (the so called “myth of return”). The article at the same time discusses the differences in the perception of “home” among the various constitutive nations, analyzes the differences in perception of refugees who found asylum in larger or, by contrast, middle-sized and small settlements; outlines the differences in perception of “home” by members of various age categories and its changes as a result of social confl ict between urban and rural refugees. The concluding part of the text is dedicated to the problem if it is possible at all to rejuvenate the original concept of “home” in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
