The HLC Executive Director, Natasa Kandic, said that the aim of the presentation was to create a lasting record about what happened not only in the municipality of Orahovac/Rahovec but all Kosovo because – even if people know what happened in their neighborhood – there is still not a comprehensive picture about everything that happened in Kosovo.
Bekim Blakaj, Head of the HLC-Kosovo office, presented the details of the register of killed and missing for the municipality of Orahovac/Rahovec.
