One Life between Kosova and America

One Life between Kosova and America with Harry Bajraktari's Family
Author: Muhamet Mjeku
Pages: 334
Hard Cover
ISBN 978-1-4507-8118-3

The Bajraktari family from Vranoc, Lugu i Baranit (Lugu of Baran), has a long, impressive, and distinguished history. Their journey was full of hardships and glory. Like many other Albanian families, the Bajraktaris have their own characteristics, their origin, and identity. They have preserved their individuality for centuries and, when necessary, they fought to protect it against foreign invaders such as the Turks, Serbs, and Montenegrins.
The Bajraktari family is originally from Malėsia e Gjakovės (Highlands of Gjakova), from the village of Geghysen to be exact, not far from the city of Bajram Curri in Albania. Geghysen, a region of Malėsia e Gjakovės has always been especially known for its interpretation of and adherence to the Code of Lekė Dukagjini (the ancient code of Albanian customary law). If there were any land ownership disputes, or unresolved personal conflicts, people used to go to Geghysen to find answers and solutions. There was an old saying: “If you don't trust anybody for anything, go to Geghysen to find answers.” The most valuable characteristics of the Albanians, such as wisdom, pride, bravery, hospitality, and — above all — love of country, have been preserved and cultivated for centuries in this region.
