For our purposes of evaluating the state of the debate on the end of Yugoslavia, the lesson of this case, however, does not end there. Peter Catterall (1997: 445) was right when he warned contemporary historians that ‘Different perceptions and memories will lead to the construction of different cognitive realities’.
