Albania President - Alfred Moisiu

Distinguished Mr. President,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
When the world lived through the Shoah, one of the darkest acts engraved on the historic memory of civilization, I was at the age of a pupil. As citizen of an occupied, impoverished and freedom thirsty country, I was fortunate to witness some of the most humane, civil and noble acts of my people: resisting to the occupation, the Albanians sheltered and shared the war’s grieving days with thousands of Jews, a part of whom chose Albania to live. Albania was the only European country where at the end of Second World War counted inside its border more Jews than it had at the beginning of the war. We are grateful to our parents, who even though at war themselves and suffering great deprivations, did not accept pacts and compensations at the disadvantage of the life of Jews.
