Fact of the Day: Albanian Heroism

During the Holocaust, many Christians and Muslims in Albania protected existing Jews and Jewish refugees despite being occupied by Fascist Italy and later Nazi Germany. Albania was the only European country to have more Jewish residents after World War II than before it began.

Albania was also the most repressive of the Communist bloc
regimes after WW2.
Life in Albania was far from "PARADISE".
I think a lot of checking of the period of rule by Enver Hoxha and you'll find he was not the nicest of individuals.
Albania was a CLOSED NATION and a pariah.
