DescriptionREMZIJE SHERIFI worked as a journalist with Radio Gjilan in Kosova. She lost her job, and almost her life, as the Milosevic regime steadily tightened its grip on the Albanian people who lived there. In SHADOW BEHIND THE SUN she recounts her family's history to shine a new light on the terrible events of the 1990s. Now a British citizen, she has made her commitment to Asylum Seekers and other refugees, working with the Maryhill Integration Network in Glasgow. The shadow of past events stands behind the sunrise of every new constitutional or social development. Can they be forgotten? Should they? There has never been so much displacement in the world as at the present time. Beside the history of the Kosovar people she describes the plight of Asylum Seekers in the here and now. Remzije Sherifi is a compassionate and visionary presence in difficult and changing times.
