Sanije Salihu, 70, of Gjakova, eastern Kosovo, holds up a photo of her daughter, Vjollca, at age 20. Vjollca was violently raped and beaten during the 1998-1999 war with Serbia and was left paralyzed. She died in 2006. “If she had died during the war, [Kosovo] would have mourned her,” Salihu says. “My heart aches that she wasted away like she was nothing.”
