On March 24, 1999, NATO dropped the first bombs on Serbian military targets in Kosovo and in Serbia proper. It was the beginning of a 78-day campaign to end the war in Kosovo. Twenty years later, the need to deal with the past remains stronger than ever.
A while ago, we asked our readers to send us personal accounts of their memories surrounding these events. Furtuna Sheremeti was one of the respondents to our call, “Where were you when the bombs fell?”
“78 days of fire, a lifetime of smoke” is his personal account of those events and what they meant to the author, which you now can listen to as a part of our “Outloud” podcast.
