Kosovo 1999 War Memorial- 3 Days Tour
Reading about the war in a book or newspaper, watching a news story or glimpsing a picture somewhere gives you information. Visiting the sites of where the most recent was in Kosovo, just two decades ago, brought so much pain and human life loss gives visitors an entirely different perspective to the horrors that wars bring upon all humanity. For this three-day tour into the recent past of Kosovo’s youngest country, we have selected several sites that unfold the events of this dark stain on the history of mankind. The Kosovo 1999 War Memorial Tour begins at the Documentation Center of Kosovo, where you can watch recordings from massacre sites, trials conducted at The Hague Tribunal on the genocide committed here, and heart-wrenching images. Even bridges or stonewalls have their own stories to tell. We must visit the past and remember the dark times of history to prevent them from happening again.
