In Belgrade: We were just children
Although  the Operation Allied Force in Kosowo War made civilian casualties be lighter than in any other conflict involving modern mass airpower, Human Rights Watch confirmed incidents in which civilians died as a result of NATO bombing, some of them in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is reported than between 489 and 520 Yugoslav civilians were killed in the NATO airstrikes. Among them there were some children.
The monument We were just children in the Tašmajdan Park, Belgrade, close to the Radio Television of Serbia headquarters is a reminder of the tragedy.
It consists of a heart-like shaped monument and a sculpture of a little girl which were erected by the city of Belgrade for all the children that died in the bombing. The monument says "We were just children" in English and Serbian.
These photos were taken in August 2017.
