Archipelago Yugoslavia

In the summer of 1991 Yugoslavia broke up. In the aftermath came independence for its constituent republics and a fratricidal war that left more than 200,000 dead and lingering scars. To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the breakup we are publishing – in collaboration with the Traduki network – a series of testimonies by Yugoslav writers, poets and intellectuals. They recount their experience of seeing their native country disappear, and the beginnings of their new nations.
