Wir wissen nicht mehr, wer wir sind: Vergessene Minderheiten auf dem Balkan
The Balkans is the region in Europe with the most ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities. Whether it is the Torbeši in southwestern Macedonia, the Pomaks in northern Greece who converted to Islam or the Christian Aromanians. Cyrill Stieger, long-time correspondent of the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, knows them better than almost anyone else. He has spoken with descendants of the Vlachs in Istria and talked to representatives of the Goranci in the Albanian-Macedonian border region, and on his journey through Central and Eastern Europe he found a fascinating world that is threatened to disappear.
