The Plight of Kosovo Refugees

Picture author: Carol Guzy
Picture date: 1999

The photo is part of the Washington Post’s Pulitzer Prize-Winning entry (2000) showing gow a Kosovar refugee Agim Shala, 2, is passed through a barded wire fence into the hands of grandparents at a camp run by United Arab Emirates in Kukes, Albania. The member of the Shala family were united after fleeing the conflict in Kosovo.

The image taken by Carol Guzy depicts a boy being reunited with family members at refugee camp on the border of Albania-Kosovo. Ethnic violence of one group trying to fight for territory they believe is theirs always seems to result in mass refugee issues. Further history of the family remains unknown.
