The Karć brothers Foundation held a promotion of two new titles by Maria Line Veca, “Landscapes of the Soul” and “Wolf’s Heart”, on Friday, February 25th.
Both books are a unique confirmation of the author’s twenty years of dedicated work on revealing the truth about the life of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija.
From the conversations she had with Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, especially with the families of the abductees whom she considers invited before anyone else to speak “about the so-called statehood of Kosovo achieved by NATO bombs,” four books were written: “Kosovo lost”, “Landscapes of the Soul”, “Prison under the Open sky “and “Wolf’s heart”. In her book “Wolf’s heart”, she adds to the confessions about terror and suffering, but also the survival of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, the fates of four Serbian men: a doctor, an engineers, a professors and a farmer, whose organs ended up in the bodies of other people.
Maria Lina Veca wanted to find out the truth about the grave crimes against Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, she dared to pass it on, and she was brave enough to fight for it. For such perseverance shown in the basic principles of her own profession, for her chivalrous attitude towards the truth – the Karić Brothers Foundation has rewarded Marilina Veca the Karić Brothers Award for outstanding achievements in journalism.
Danijela Karić Martać greeted the present on behalf of the family and the Foundation, by saying:
“Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear friends, dear Maria,
It gives me a great honor and pleasure to greet you on behalf of the family and our Foundation and wish you a warm welcome. For more than 40 years, our Foundation has been guided by the idea of preserving the spiritual and material culture of our nation and, in particular, on preserving our alphabet and our language. We are honored to present two more carefully selected titles written by the laureate of the BK Award, Maria Lina Veca. These books are part of the FRIENDS OF SERBIA edition. The edition will present you authors who express great love and respect for Serbia and the Serbian people.
