Éxodo Kosovar 1999

During March and April 1999, thousands of Kosovars crossed the Morina border crossing between Albania and Kosovo every day, fleeing Serbian repression and NATO’s military offensive, in what was considered the largest population displacement in such a short period of time since World War II. More than 50,000 refugees settled as best they could in the vicinity of the town of Kukes, the closest town to the border crossing.
