‘Most of all I would just like to know now what happened to them, that they didn’t suffer too much’, says one woman, who still lays the table for her husband and sons, 20 years after they were arrested and went missing

“I don’t think the Serbs will give us anything. I hope there isn’t another war, but we will fight again if necessary. There is unfinished business,” says Berat Dana, sitting with a group of former comrades and reflecting on what lies ahead for Kosovo two decades after the bitter struggle for independence.

Mr Dana lost 13 members of his family in the conflict. The others who were in the Kosovar Liberation Army (KLA) with him also paid a price – injuries, capture and torture as well as losing relations themselves.

They want to see a final settlement with Serbia, they say, as long as it is just and fair. They remain uncertain about if and when that will be possible.
