The Kosovo War (1998-1999) was the last of the

Yugoslav Wars.

Fought between Yugoslav government forces

– police, army, paramilitaries – and the ethnic

Albanian Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), the war

crimes committed, mainly by the security forces,

shocked the world at the time and continue to be

vividly remembered in Kosovo.

 

They included indiscriminate massacres, revenge

killings, the murder of children and the elderly,

sexual violence, the destruction and theft of

property, and torture. More than 10,000 civilians

died during the war, about three times the

number of combatant deaths.

 

In the Blackbird’s Fields documents the sites of

some of those atrocities, with many now fading

into the background of everyday life, as a call to

remembrance and reflection.
