They were also interested in reactions of families and politicians to the fact that the Kosovo Memory Book describes human losses of all ethnic groups. The attention was drawn to the fact that a lot of children were killed during the war in Kosovo. They agreed that the presentation of individual fates of people and circumstances under which they lost their lives or disappeared, represents the best testimony of such a burdensome past.
