  1. I’m married to a Serbian physicist who also made some interesting discoveries — they are just too technical for me to understand and communicate. He got his education in Canada and here, and made his discoveries while working in industry in California. He has been a US citizen since 1964.

    • There are many smart people in Serbia who want to learn and work.Unfortunately, many of them leave Serbia and go to the western countries … America, Canada, Germany, Scandinavia ..They have better conditions there to learn, work and earn money.

          • That’s true. The Communists lived well in houses they took from those like my parents’ family who weren’t Communists. My husband witnessed many of his neighbors being killed when he was but a boy. He thought they were just sleeping in the mud and couldn’t figure out why. He was there because they had also intended to kill his family, but God was merciful and allowed his parents the opportunity to take the soldiers to their house to search for the German flour they’d been accused of having so they could prove their innocence. They didn’t have any, and they escaped death.
