This photo from 1941 shows an Albanian fascist killing the prior Damaskin Bošković from Devič Monastery in Kosovo (pronounced Devich). The 15th century monastery was afterwords destroyed to the ground.

Kosovo Albanians devastated Devič once again in 1999. Fr. Seraphim was severely beaten in the holy altar, and was saved with the nuns only by a French military patrol.

Devič was burnt to the ground again in 2004 March Pogrom.

Devic Monastery 2004

The destruction of priceless Serbian heritage was followed by pogroms of Serbian people in World War II, in 1999 and 2004 alike.

Not a single perpetrator of this cultural and ethnic cleansing was prosecuted by the so called „Republic of Kosovo“, but many of them are celebrated as heroes and rewarded by the „newborn“ state.

Director-General of UNESCO Irina Bokova recently condemned Islamic State for „culturally cleansing“ the Middle East.

Will UNESCO reward cultural cleansing in Kosovo? Will it make vandals into guardians of heritage? On the very day dedicated to their Serbian victims?
