Fatima Vejzović was born in 1948 in Piskavice (part of Vlasencia), where she got married and had three children, two daughters and a son.
She left for Tuzla when Vlasenica fell. Her husband was captured and his long captivity left him traumatized. Her son died in Germany after becoming seriously ill. Fatima was left behind with her daughters and grandchildren.
She has worked with BOSFAM since 1996. One of her daughters works with her and Fatima hopes to pass her weaving skills on to her. She often says, "When I weave carpets, I at least partially forget my problems."
