The Serbian memory of Kosovo

Under UN protection since June 1999, the Albanians of Kosovo have declared their independence on February 17,2008.

“Since 1999 more than 200,000 Serbs have fled Kosovo and 22,000 have had to abandon their flats or houses in order to find refuge in nearby landlocked villages. And while Albanian villages are draped in flags and banners, resembling the aftermath of a national holiday, the Serbian ghettos sink in misery and despair. (...) Some Serbs dream of leaving, but in the Gorazdevac enclave as elsewhere, many more want to stay at all costs. Because of their dead, because of their land; this cradle which beckons them like an eternal grave”.
