Kosovo Albanians marched from Prizren to Bar 1945.

The Bar massacre (Albanian: Masakra e Tivarit) was the 1945 killing of up to 4,200 Albanians in Bar by Yugoslav partisan forces after World War II. [1]

The victims were Albanian recruits from Kosovo, who were supposed to fight the retreating Nazi army. The Serbian commanders collected the Albanian recruits together, disarmed them and let them walk from Prizren to Bar through the route Prizren-Zhur-Kukës-Puk-Shkodër-Tivar in North Albania in three different groups. The recruits were mistreated while on the way and when they arrived in Tivar they were executed by the Yugoslav guards[2].
