    Auch interessant das damals sich noch viele bosnische Muslime in den USA als Kroaten gesehen haben. z.B in Chicago wenn ich mich nicht ganz irre hat die katholische Gemeinde der Kroaten den Muslimen aus Bosnien geholfen eine Moschee zu bauen..

    Auch interessant ist die Geschichte der Familie Kulenovic:

    Dr. Džafer-beg Kulenović (1891 - 1956) was the Vice President of the Independent State of Croatia during World War II. He also became President of Yugoslav Moslem Organization, the largest Bosniak political party at the time, following the death of Dr. Mehmed Spaho in 1939.
    Kulenović was born in Rajnovići on February 17, 1891. He served as president of the Yugoslav Moslem Organization and was a minister in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia's government before the Second World War.
    He became the vice-president of the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) on November 7, 1941 and held the position to war's end. He had actually succeeded his older brother Osman Kulenović in this position.
    After the fall of the NDH, Kulenović immigrated to Syria. He lived there until his death on October 3, 1956 in Damascus. While in Syria, the Croats in Argentina published a collection of his journalistic writings. In 1950, the Bosniak Community in Chicago published a speech he wrote for the Muslim Congress following World War Two in Lahore, Pakistan. This twenty-two page pamphlet entitled "A Message of Croat Moslems to Their Religious Brethren in the World" detailed Serb aggression against Croatians of Islamic faith and promoted the idea of Croat unity. Only a few months before his death, the Croatian Liberation Movement was formed, with Dr. Kulenović being one of the founders and signatories. His son Nahid Kulenović continued working with this Movement, but was assassinated by the Yugoslavia secret police, UDBA, in Munich.
    Dr. Kulenović was one of the highest ranking Muslims in the NDH. His grandson also named Džafer, is now one of the main Bosniak leaders in North America having served as the Vice President of the Congress of North American Bosniaks (2002-2009) the largest Bosniak organization in the USA, President of the Islamic Cultural Center in Northbrook, Illinois (2004-2009) (the oldest Bosniak mosque in North America), and as a member of the Governing Board of the Democratic Action Party (SDA) in Sarajevo (2001-2009). He currently serves as President and CEO of Crescent Bancshares, a new bank venture being developed in the Chicago area catering to the Southeastern European and South Asian communities with a specialty in Islamic Banking.
    Ing. Nahid Kulenović (1929-1969), the son of Džafer-beg Kulenović, was a Bosniak member of the Croatian Liberation Movement. He was also a well-known Croatian newspaper columnist and activist. He was married to Marrijana Dezelic, the daughter of the well-known Croatian activist, Berislav Đuro Dezelić.
    Nahid was assassinated by the Yugoslav Secret Police, UDBA, in Munich in July, 1969.
    His son, Džafer, has served as the Vice President of the Congress of North American Bosniaks, (2002-2009) (the largest Bosniak organization in North America), as the President of the Islamic Cultural Center (the oldest Bosnian mosque in North America) in Northbrook, IL, USA (2004-2009), and as a member of the Governing Board of Democratic Action Party (SDA) in Sarajevo (2001-2009). He currently serves as President and CEO of Crescent Bancshares, a new bank venture being developed in the Chicago area catering to the Southeastern European and South Asian communities with a specialty in Islamic Banking.

    Ulfeta i Mustafa Sarić na putovanju
    brodom za Ameriku 1906. godine.
    Mustafa je bio jedan od prvih Bosanaca
    koji je na pocetku dvadesetog stoljeća dosao u Ameriku.
    1918. godine otvorio je kafanu
    poznatu pod imenom Sarića kafana.

    Piknik kod Dilića na granici Viskonzina i Ilinoisa,
    bio je veoma popularna društvena zabava. /Zerina Zvizdic/

    Arif Dilić, rodjen u Gacku,
    BiH, na slici sa ženom Anom i troje djece.
    Ostao je upamćen kao veoma dobar organizator i biznismen.
    Obično bi za Dan neovisnosti SAD,
    na svoju farmu u Woodstock-u, pozivao zemljake na piknik i druženje.

    Kafana Sarića,
    gdje su imigranti voljeli svraćati bila je na tri sprata,
    zidana ciglom, Dva gornja sprata korištena su kao mjesto stanovanja Bosanaca koji nisu imali porodice.
    Mustafa Sarić je u ovoj zgradi radio i kao sekretar udruženja

    Ulfeta Sarić je osnovala ranih 1930-ih Bosansku pjevačku grupu.
    Žene kao Ulfeta brinule su o priredbama za praznike.
    Pored ove grupe Postojao je orkestar
    "Anna Dilich tamburica" i Kolo djevojaka, plesna grupa.

    Jusuf Hebib ispred Sarića kafane za Zerinom i Safijom Sarić,
    kasnih 30-tih ili ranih 40-tih godina.
    On je porodicu Sarića drzao svojom,
    kao sto je Čikago bio njegov dom.

    This garment-district cafeteria makes the best and biggest bureks in town—titanic slabs of flaky phyllo pie hefted from the oven throughout the day. The spinach-and-cheese version is sublime, but the ground-beef is even better. The kitchen also turns out great servings of stuffed cabbage and beef goulash as well as cevapi, tasty Bosnian beef sausages served with feta, onion, and a peppery condiment so alarmingly bright red that in the absence of a flare, you could use it as a roadside distress signal. — Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld

    The Tastes of Bosnia Follow Those Who Fled

    Published: March 29, 2006
    In the last few years Bosnian products have quietly begun taking their place on the shelves of New York's ethnic groceries.
    Most Americans know of Bosnia and Herzegovina because of the war from 1992 to 1995, and the war was actually the catalyst for the imports.
    Bosnians who fled to the United States began yearning for tastes of home, said Peter Menikou, owner of Euromarket in Astoria, Queens, which specializes in foods of southeastern Europe. New York's Bosnian-born population has tripled since the 2000 census, which found about 2,000, the Census Bureau estimates.
    "The last seven years it's booming," Mr. Menikou said. "They gave a lot of visas to refugees."
    Before its disintegration in the early 1990's Yugoslavia — from which Bosnia and Herzegovina split — exported a variety of packaged and processed foods to the United States. But until then it was never clear which Yugoslav republic those products were from, Mr. Menikou said.
    Now, not only has the war made that clear, he said, but it has intensified regional differences in taste. "Everybody makes its own" now, he said. "Croatia makes its own. Bosnia makes its own. Serbia, Macedonia."
    Yugoslav food has much in common with that of its neighbors to the east and the south, including Greece and especially Turkey. Among the best-known dishes are burek, a savory phyllo-based pastry, and cevapcici, sausagelike patties of spiced grilled lamb.
    Within Yugoslavia, Bosnia was particularly famous for its meat, said Simun Simunovic, president of the Grand Prix Trading Corporation, an importer in Ridgewood, Queens.
    "They are known as masters of grilling," said Mr. Simunovic, who grew up in Dubrovnik, a Croatian city near the Bosnian border. "Bosnia was known for cevapcici and another dish called pljeskavica — like hamburger but with garlic, sautéed onion and hot pepper mixed in."
    Meat products cannot be imported because of federal restrictions, so specialties like suho meso, smoked beef that is reminiscent of bresaola, are made with traditional recipes in plants in the United States, he said.
    The foods that Mr. Simunovic imports from Bosnia are more eclectic and obscure. They include ajvar, a relish made from red paprika peppers and eggplant that is served with grilled meat, and pekmez od sljiva, a thick, tart fruit spread made from the plums that also produce the region's famous slivovitz brandy. Feta-style cheese from Travnik in central Bosnia, creamier and less crumbly than the Greek version, is also available. Mr. Simunovic said he sells about $1 million a year worth of products from Bosnia, up from less than $200,000 10 years ago.
    To homesick refugees, even the most mundane products can be comforting. Mr. Simunovic said Bosnia's Turkish-style coffee is his biggest seller. "They're big coffee drinkers, and they use this traditional way," with an unusually fine grind, he said.
    Sugar cubes are also imported. Anisa Karkin Hromic, who emigrated from Bosnia in 1999, said, "The older people I know say they only like the Bosnian sugar cubes," which are flat, shaped like pats of butter with ragged edges. They taste the same, but the homemade look is important.
    Exports of these products resumed quickly after the war because Bosnia's major food manufacturers were situated away from the battle zones, in cities like Travnik and Zenica, rather than the besieged capital, Sarajevo. The sole Adriatic Sea port through which Bosnian goods are shipped, Ploce, was not seriously damaged in the war and was available once the roads reopened, Mr. Simunovic said.
    (By contrast foods from Kosovo, another war-torn region of the former Yugoslavia, are not yet widely available, because Kosovo is landlocked and the question of its independence has not been resolved.)
    While the stores do provide a taste of Bosnia, Ms. Karkin Hromic wishes for more. "There are some products that I think you'd be a millionaire if you could sell them," she said.
    The products that are available show up mainly in the outer boroughs where immigrants live, particularly Brooklyn and Queens. Mr. Simunovic said his company did business with 215 stores in New York City, virtually all outside Manhattan.
    It isn't clear whether this is because Bosnian food is too exotic for Americans, or because people just haven't been exposed to it yet. Mr. Simunovic thinks the latter: "If Bosnians came at the same time as Italians, we'd be eating burek and pizza. But they came too late."
