To Serb With Love

Pavle Milic untangles his Balkan roots and discovers a cauldron of ancient passion and prejudice

"I can't let what happened to me happen to this baby," says Pavle. "You must try to change history."

Pavle's mother and grandmother are already boxing up clothes to ship for the new child.

And what did his father, Rade, say when he learned Pavle was now a papa?
"My father was terrific. He said, 'Don't call me a grandfather just yet. I too need to be tested for grandfatherhood.'"

Then Rade spoke to Pavle as a father to his son: "Welcome to the club."
Pavle smiled.
The father and his son now shared a new life.
