Ilir Blakçori Shares The Heroinat Memorial
Ilir Blakçori, the lead designer of the displayed project Award Winning Heroinat Memorial points out, The contribution and pain of Kosovo women during the war has, for the most part, remained anonymous and unacknowledged. As such, this design has the purpose of honoring each of these anonymous heroines, individually. The main inspiration came while reading a report from the Human Rights Watch, on which they were claiming that there were nearly 20,000 Kosovar women that were raped during the war. This tragic number of victims was taken, and has been transformed into medals. Medals dedicated symbolically, to each and every woman’s contribution and sacrifice for their country. .
