An interesting article on Albania’s need to reckon with its repressive communist past can be found here.

“Communist dictator Enver Hoxha subjected Albania to forty-five years of one of the most centralized and repressive totalitarian regimes that the world has ever known. At least 100,000 Albanians were arrested, tortured, and imprisoned. Several thousand more were murdered from 1945 until Hoxha died and the regime of his successor, Ramiz Alia, collapsed in 1991.”
