L’ALBANIE LIBRE – BASHKIM NE LIRI

In March 1947, BKI created the gazette L’Albanie Libre as a means of disbursing information about the current events in Albania under the regime. One of the main contributors to the gazette was Prof. Ernest Koliqi.

This vital organ of the BKI was a lifeline to the refugees in exile in as they would heavily rely on its up-to-date information about the events occurring in Albania. It also served as a lifeline to all immigrants worldwide. The magazine stopped its publication in 1959.

I will be publishing editions of the gazette from 1947 to 1968 in order to show the extent of the importance of this editorial in the fight against communism from abroad. The links below will direct the reader to the publications published on Issuu.com, however you may also click on the individual images to see the paper. 

I will also select one written article from each publication and display it on the relevant page.
