Albania: The “Other” Communist Country

While places like the Soviet Union, East Germany, and Poland seem to get most of the attention when it comes to discussing oppression under Communism, the people of Albania suffered every bit as much and for just as long as did the people in those and other communist countries.

Albania is the “other” communist country.

Now, these courageous people get to tell their own stories in their own words.

Join us for a candid discussion of the Albanian communist experience and learn their lessons that are still meaningful to all freedom-loving people.

Lest we forget!

The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is proud to partner with Human Events on this timely discussion.
