Caption : Radence, Smederevo, Serbia. The house where Visnja Stankovic, her son Dejan and daughter Milica have been living for several years now after they fled Kosovo and Visnja's husband Trajko went missing. They made an arrangement with a local pensioner Bora to share his house and live off of his pension and in exchange the family does the house work and takes care of him; for that reason he got estranged from his own family.

Description : Fourteen years after the conflict, in central and northern Serbia there are roughly 88,000 internally displaced Serbs from Kosovo, many of whom still live in collective centers, or occupied housing, and receive little assistance. Kosovo was their place of birth and for many, the place that they only ever knew until the conflict of 1998-99 when many had to leave. Some still have houses in Kosovo, but their return remains uncertain. Some lost relatives during the conflict and a number of them are still waiting to learn about the fate of their missing loved ones.
