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.
Two weeks ago, we asked our readers to send us personal accounts of their memories surrounding these events. Hasan Rrahmani was one of the respondents to our call, “Where were you when the bombs fell?”
“A Memory” is his personal account of those events and the days that followed, which you now can listen to as a part of our “Outloud” podcast.
