Gjyle Gorqaj with her daughters Besarta and Clirimtore. She was asked to describe her memories of the 1999 war, when the whole population of the ethnic Albanian village of Studenica were forced to flee the fighting. "When I got back after the war I was only two weeks away from giving birth to Clirimtore. Conditions were very difficult, our house was completely destroyed and we had no money, we had lost everything. An NGO rebuilt our house but it took 18 months. During this time we lived in a tent, in the winter we were moved to a refugee centre in Banya (a large village nearby) for four months and then back to the tent. I have four children, I don't know what kind of future they will have, it's difficult to find work here. But I have hope that after independence, one day we will be happy and life will become normal like other countries."
