Kosovo

Kosovo

The Washington Post, Washington, District of Columbia, 1999

Description

This map of Kosovo documented the expulsion of more than 317,000 ethnic Albanians from their homes and villages. They were sent fleeing across the borders into neighboring Macedonia, Montenegro and Albania. These countries were overwhelmed with the influx, and while NATO, the U.S., the U.N. and private relief organizations launched major aid projects, the situation at the borders became desperate. This map pinpointed locations of harassment, killings or expulsions of ethnic Albanians by Serbian forces and documented the plight of hundreds of thousands of refugees.
