The collapse of Yugoslavia in the 20th century was the result of a multitude of wars and conflicts that plagued Southeast Europe for over a hundred years. The appalling cruelties of the past still linger in many hearts and minds in large parts of the region, resulting in ongoing violent confrontation, one of the reasons for the continued deployment of the UN Blue Helmet soldiers. For some people, it is impossible to forget the bloody past.
This documentary series gets to the bottom of the causes of the conflicts and wars. The statements of contemporary witnesses and international experts assist the investigation of the crisis in Southeast Europe. It is an examination of the genesis of the state, the era of dictator Tito, the Jugoslav wars of the 1990s, and the influence of the past on the present.
