Krusha e Madhe A village from the end of war until independence Ivo Saglietti | Zeitenspiegel | PROSPEKT

Kosovo 1999-2008 It drizzles on the morning of 25th March 1999, when serbian Soldiers and policemen enter Krusha e Madhe. War rages in Kosovo since over a year, since three days NATO drops bombs on Belgrad and incites the brutality of the intruders even more. During the next three days they are going to commit one of the worst massacres of this war. Since the end of the war, photographer Ivo Saglietti and reporter Tilman Wšrtz travelled every year once to Krusha e Madhe and documented the story of the village. How do people cope with their memories? The destruction of their homes? Is a normal daily routine thinkable? Even peace in Kosovo? How much do international NGOs really contribute? Krusha e Madhe is situated in the Drina valley and represents by its agrarian structure village life in Kosovo, by the massacre the war. Every inhabitant and protagonist of the story has his/her very own response to what happened in Krusha e Madhe.
