Letter of Condolences
Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN) today with great sorrow received the news of the death of Nexhmije Pagarusha (1933-2020), known as ‘The Nightingale of Kosovo’.
Her death is not a great loss solely for her family and friends, but also for the entire Albanian world art.
We look back proudly and recall that it was the year 2015 when KWN awarded Pagarusha with acknowledgement for ‘Courage and deeds that have motivated and empowered girls and women in Kosovo’.
We are proud and honoured that along the way to strengthening women, our roads crossed with such a powerful woman as Nexhmije Pagarusha was and will always be.
In the video below you can watch some footage from the KWN Annual Meeting held back in 2015, during which meeting ‘The Nightingale of Kosovo’ received this acknowledgment: (Available in Albanian only).
