Two decades after 14 Serbs were killed in a massacre while harvesting their crop in the Kosovo village of Gracka e Vjeter/Staro Gracko, their families’ hopes for justice are fading as no one has been prosecuted.

The annual wheat harvest season is most difficult time of the year for Slavica Popovic.

Wherever she goes during these days, she cannot help but remember the murders of four close relatives who were killed while they were out in the field harvesting their wheat.

In the night between July 23 and 24, 1999, she was woken up by the ringing of her phone. On the line was her uncle, telling that her father Momcilo, her 17-year-old brother Novica and two of her uncles had been killed.
