One of the awful night
The worst peace is better than any war
BELGRADE AFTER THE TERRIBLE NIGHTS IN 1999
This horrible disaster we really didn't deserve. Someone from the west has made a hystorical mistake.
Fortunately, we all went through rain of missiles and the coldest winter ever and we're still alive.
We send our regards to the World on May 10th, 1999  from the commons of the block No.23 in New Belgrade.

Instead of our tears this short gallery can be sent  worldwide as a remembrance and warning to mankind.

National media center - Radio Television of Serbia was destroyed, specially the Eurovision communication studio,

Belgrade's night

Belgrade by night, 78 terrible nights for 11 weeks.  Does anyone could think about the consequences?  Is it normal and moral at the end of this 20th century?  What a lovely and "dirty" sky above our city... Not to be forgottten, forever...

This page would stay here forever. Ii will be updated every March but just to be added some subtitles or notes not to move or change images. A
ll these to remind bad guys and their bosses not their victims. So, today is May 10th, 2000. We went through the awful period.
Summer is in the beginning. We're still under the sanctions and misery. Hope it may be finished very soon. Normal people are really at the end.
