Manca Juvan - what about homeland?

Through our project, I was trying to explore the idea of homeland. I met with Belarus people of different ages and backgrounds, who had a thing in common - a wish for a more free and prosperous life. That's why they chose New York as their new home. I was wondering, for example through what locations do people remember their own city or country; what are the objects they keep and which remind them of their roots; what are the places they identify with and like most in their new home, as well as what are their dreams for the future; how these concepts co-relate, in terms of how where we come from shapes us and our future... ?
