Memories of a Bombardment: Reflections on the 20th Anniversary of the NATO Bombing of Yugoslavia (Balkanist magazine, 2019)

It’s hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. From today’s vantage point, those 78 days seem like a foreign world, and one that I sometimes wish to forget, but my memories, dreams and spontaneous associations bring me back to the spring of 1999, whether I want to remember or not. What follows, then, is not necessarily a historical analysis or an overall depiction of what occurred; rather, it is a glimpse into my memories, my dreams and my spontaneous associations of life in Belgrade during the bombings.”

You can find the whole text at Balkanist’s website: https://balkanist.net/memories-of-a-bombardment-20th-annivesary-of-the-nato-bombardment/

Thanks Balkanist editor Lily Lynch for publishing it and Goran Stojčetović for agreeing to use his artwork from that period as illustrations.

This is my second text for Balkanist, the first was about bizarre sculptures in Belgrade.
