Millete Birhanemaskel's parents fled civil war in Ethiopia decades ago, while other family members stayed behind. Now war rages again in their home province, Tigray. Many of Birkhanemaskel's relatives have been displaced. Others are completely unaccounted for.
Birhanemaskel, who owns a Denver coffee shop, recently visited Sudanese refugee camps in hopes of learning more about her family's whereabouts and about the war.
