Demaci spent 28 years in various prisons in former Yugoslavia for his passionate advocacy of Kosovo Albanian rights, later becoming a symbol of the national independence struggle – despite which he remained a sworn opponent of the politics of revenge and national hatred.
Adem Demaci was born in August 1935 in Pristina, in the Kingdom of Serbs-Croats and Slovenes. As a result of tough living conditions and the lack of healthcare, of the seven children, only three survived. Unsure whether Adem would also survive, his parents did not even register his birth until February 26, 1936, six months later.
