Camp Pristava 2015 will be held from Monday, July 13th through Sunday, July 19st, 2015 at Slovenska Pristava in Harpersfield, Ohio. We will be celebrating our 50th anniversary since the founding. Camp Pristava is for students of St. Mary’s Slovenian School, St. Vitus Slovenian School and children of Slovenska Pristava members.
Life for all Slovenians changed, as they knew it with the horrendous events of May 1945 and the days, months, and years that followed. Those days culminated with the torture and murder of thousands, the separation of families, the theft of land and livelihood, and the loss of home and homeland. For the families who stayed behind, Slovenia was wrapped in poverty, fear, and abuse. For those living in the international refugee camps came the realization that most would not be going home again and the resolution to begin life anew.
