Studenica, KOSOVO

Avni Gorqaj (18) playing volleyball beside the ruins of a burnt out home. Four months after being forced to flee Studenica due to fighting between Serbian paramilitaries and the Kosovan Liberation Army (KLA), ethnic Albanians were finally able to return to their homes. Avni was studying to become a hodji, or Muslim holy man. The village's old hodji was one of 23 people whose bodies were recovered when the refugees returned.
George Georgiou photographed Avni Gorqaj again seven years later (image GGE00566KOS).
