"War children" were again discussed in Finland at the beginning of the 1990s as war was raging in Yugoslavia . Some people thought that Finland should receive Bosnian children as refugees in the same way as Sweden took care of Finnish "War children" during the Second World War. Finnish war children were against these plans and influenced the Finnish Red Cross to take a negative stance on the issue.
Germany received war children from Yugoslavia during the 1990s. In 1997 the process of returning these children back to their parents began. The children experienced same kind of problems as Finnish "war children" after WW II, especially those who have been very young at the time of arrival in Germany.
