Vasfije Krasniqi Goodman
Preživela // Stićenica žrtava silovanja I ratnih zločina
Uvek ću predstavljati glas preživelih. Veoma je bitno podeliti naše priče. Ono što nas je zadesilo nije naša krivica I ako ne govorimo o ovom zločinu ostaće samo tišina. Ne samo na Kosovu, već u celom svetu. Mi ne želimo sažaljenje, mi smo normalna ljudska bića koja su samo doživela rat više nego ostali.
Vasfije Krasniqi Goodman is the first woman in to Kosovo to speak openly about being raped during the war in Kosovo in 1999. 20 years after the event that took place when she was 16, Kraniqi returned to the spot of her assault and spoke publicly, detailing the devastating impact the event had on her life, and calling for justice for survivors of war crimes in Kosovo and across the globe. “I will always stand in solidarity with survivors around the world. I want them to know they are not alone and together we are stronger,” said Krasniqi. “Most people praise and respect me. I hope all survivors get this kind of respect when they decide to share.”
