Dusan Velickovic, editor in chief of Biblioteka Alexandria, attended
the conference "Genocidal violence in the former Yugoslavia, 1992-1995", which was
held at The Danish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies,
Copenhagen, November 15 – 18, 2001. Velickovic delevered a paper
entitled "Mortal Men, Immortal Crimes". He concluded: "Milosevic
had intended, for his people, the sort of immortality that Aristotle
sees in belonging to a species whose immortal life is guaranteed
through procreation. Which, paradoxically, left only Milosevic
and his political gangsters as mortals. Only they had their own
recognisable life-story, their power, their money, and their crimes.
All the rest of us were supposed to be immortal and exist only
as members of the ethnos, the people..."
Gallix, the editor of 3 AM MAGAZINE, published an interview with Dusan Velickovic in October, 2001.
It can be visited online at 3 AM web site.

Pobjeda published an interview
Velickovic, editor in chief of Biblioteka Alexandria.
Velickovic talked about Biblioteka Alexandria as an international
project, as well as about politics and culture in Serbia and Montenegro.
He said Montenegro and Serbia should be independent in European
way, without borders and customs. Being so closed, very alike
and very different, both countries might consider it to be a great
privilege and advantage.
