Stories Dedicated to the issue of missing persons from the last war in Kosovo

Story #7

“I saw a dove and two pigeons playing”
(Interview with the now deseased Nebih Morina)
Nebih Morina is the father of five children: three girls and two boys. In the case of Nebih case, unlike the others, his boys did not go missing, but instead his oldest daughter, Mevlyde. Married in Suhareka, the mother of two sons, 5-year-old Genc and 3-year-old Granit, she disappears along with ten others, including her children, her husband, parents-in-law and brothers-in-law, after their house is surrounded by tanks.
Some years after the war, the remains of most family members were found, with the exception of Mevlyde and her brother-in-law, Hajdin Berisha. Today, twenty years later, Nebih tells the pain of his missing girl and murdered grandsons, which he sometimes puts into rhyme, while comparing their former life with the poverty he has been living in since the Serbian forces burned down properties and stole belongings.
