Description of the content For more than 6 centuries in the Albanian north blood is repaid with blood. The law of the vendetta is holding thousands of people hostage. Families are at war for killings that place more than half a century ago. The passion for revenge will even kill small children. Those who want to live have had to turn their homes into prisons. Some remained imprisoned for their entire lives! It is estimated that 800 to 1,500 children in Albania are living in fear because of the threat of Vendetta. They grow up in a cage, with no access to school. They are not even allowed out to play. In the so-called "valley of death" people have been taught by their ancestors to settle their differences with their weapons, following the rules of a justice system carried down through the generations from the middle Ages.
