« There the misled memory feeds the desert.
Near the fire on which days do not feed,
The buried complaint and the hidden treasure remain. »
– Branko Miljkovic
Through the last century, Belgrade (Serbia’s capital city) was bombed on several occasions, for the last time in 1999. After World War II, Tito, the Yugoslav Wars, Slobodan Milošević, the city is slowly coming back to life.
The Oluja Operation was the last big battle of the Croatian War of Independence, wich was followed by a mass-exodus of Serbs from Croatia, leading to a significant humanitarian crisis. This event is an important point in contemporary Serbs culture.
“Oluja” mean storm.
