Albania — Banned or Difficult to Find Information about the
Suppression of Ideas in Albania and about its Socialist Era

      [Intro to be added.]

      Many of the scanned documents on this page have been taken from elsewhere on the Internet, and in particular from the “Left Side of the Road” blog (at; the Marxist Internet Archive (at; the Russian language website; and from a website formerly operated by the “Socialist Truth in Cyprus” group in London (“Kibris’ta Sosyalist Gerçek — Londra Bürosu”). Although we don’t know the political views of this last group, we thank them and our other sources for their extensive scanning efforts.

      There are two types of PDF scans below: image scans, which consist of a picture of each page, and processed scans, which use character recognition software to read each page image and then reconstruct those pages in a smaller, easier to read file with sharper text. (However, this process frequently changes the fonts and word spacing, and might introduce a few errors occasionally.)

      Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with any past or present political parties or movements in Albania, nor in any other country for that matter. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to any Albanian party nor to any other party. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both Albania and internationally to read the views and publications of all parties and political organizations. And for this reason alone we are making copies of many of their documents available on this site. Home Page
