The Municipality of Tirana supports 'Even the wall hear', an initiative of the Authority for Information on Former-Secret Police Files (AIFSPF), dedicated to the collection of testimonies on communist persecution.
Mayor Erion Veliaj met on Tuesday with AIFSPF director, Gentiana Sulaj, in the framework of 27th anniversary of former-communist ruler Hoxha toppling by the citizens.
Pairs discussed on the ways through which this initiative may be implemented aiming to introduce the young generations with one of the darkest periods of country's history.
'The municipality of Tirana will support this initiative because I think that if we do not dedicate some time and energy to an internal cleanup an historic chance may be lost," declared Mayor Veliaj.
This initiative aims to give a chance to those that suffered communist persecution to convey personal testimonies and experiences through their testimonies.
