The Albanians

The Albanians

Because his father is in prison, Geras, age 12, now spends most of his time among the abandoned cars at a junkyard in a poor area on the outskirts of Tirana, Albania. After the 1997 collapse of Albania's economy, widespread looting and ethnic conflict broke out in Albania and Kosovo, a majority Albanian province in southern Serbia, which led to the mass exodus of thousands of ethnic Albanians in 1998 and early 1999; nearly all of these 850,000 refugees returned to Kosovo starting in mid-1999, many seeking revenge against the Serbs.
