Memorie.al publishes some archival documents issued by the Central State Archive in Tirana (fund of former Central Committee of the PLA’s), which belong to 1963, where the first secretary of the Party Committee of the city ‘s Tirana, Rrapo Dervishi, through an information report bearing the logo ‘Top secret’, informs the secretary of the Central Committee of the ALP, Rita Marko, “On the hostile activity of recent months in the city of Tirana ” , where Add detail about some foreign citizens, mainly women and girls ‘ve Polish, Hungarian, etc.. The information in question is first and initialed by Enver Hoxha, who put a note to investigate hungarezen, Kloreta Nano (wife of Dr. Costa Nano, a doctor at the Military Hospital), which said: ” In Albania created a situation so serious that one does not dare to tell the truth to another. Albanian authorities did not allow representatives h ungarezë wander freely to clarified measures. Enver Hoxha and Mehmet Shehu are among the most ignorant, because they do not understand the situation and jump against Khrushchev, but they will see that Khrushchev has not acted yet. Khrushchev and Tito are statesmen of the largest that I save humanity, are visionary and that the world should be proud of these, etc., …”!
Lenin’s famous statement that “Every communist is a Czech” seems to have been best applied to the communists of the basic organization of the party no. 5 in the city of Tirana in 1963, who voluntarily, have done the duty of State Security employees, following, surveying, collecting data on some foreign nationals who were in Tirana at that time. This comes out and becomes clear from an information report of the first secretary of the Party Committee of the city of Tirana, Rrapo Dervishi, sent to Rita Markos, who at that time held the position of secretary of the Central Committee of the ALP, for the organs of the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat”. In the report-information in question, from the communists of that basic organization, a series of data were collected, “on the hostile activity” carried out by some foreign girls and women, mainly Polish, Hungarian, etc., who were part of the diplomatic corps of accredited in Albania. For example, the daughter of the Polish commercial attaché (student at the “Sami Frashëri” gymnasium), or were married to Albanians, such as the Hungarian agronomist, Edi Çeliku, an employee of the Tirana Cleaning and Greening Enterprise and Kloreta Nano, the wife of Dr. Costa Nano, then a doctor at the Military Hospital of Tirana. As we will see from the document in question (and the relevant facsimiles), after receiving the report-information, the secretary of the Central Committee of the ALP, Rita Marko, sent it to Enver Hoxha, who put the relevant notes there for each case. Unlike the cases of the high school girl of the Polish commercial attaché or agronomist Edi Çeliku (married to an Albanian), where Enver did not mention anything about their “hostile activity”, in the case of the Hungarian Kloreta Nano, he wrote: “To be investigated as such it will be”. This, because he did not forgive her the words said about him that: “Enver Hoxha and Mehmet Shehu are ignorant, because they do not understand the situation, while Tito and Khrushchev are great statesmen who are saving humanity and the world will be proud for these…”.

INFORMATION ON SOME ARMENIAN APPEARANCES CERTIFIED IN LAST MONTHS IN THE CITY OF
During the last months of this year the Party Committee has received some information from party organizations through which we become aware of some types and forms of hostile activity expressed orally, through slogans written by various persons on the walls. as well as suspicious encounters that have made the element with poor composition, below we are listing some of these data:
- Hostile oral propaganda
The wife of Dr. Kosta Nano, named Kloreta Nano, with Hungarian citizenship, says in meetings with various Albanian women: In Albania, a serious situation has been created so that one does not dare to tell the truth to another. Albanian authorities do not allow Hungarian representatives to roam freely to clarify the measures. Enver Hoxha and Mehmet Shehu are among the most ignorant because they do not understand the situation and jump against Khrushchev, but they will see that Khrushchev has not acted yet. Khrushchev and Tito are among the greatest statesmen who are saving humanity, they are far-sighted and the world should be proud of these, etc. comments of a hostile nature. In all cases she received the deserved response from her friends. As far as we know, she has recently asked to leave for Hungary.
We have informed the Central Committee of the Party on the above on 4.II.1963. On our part, measures were taken to increase the vigilance of the Party organization in Neighborhood no. 5. The Directorate of Internal Affairs was also charged with pursuing the case of the Hungarian citizen. To see the position of Costa Nano, a former doctor at the Military Hospital, the Political Directorate of the People’s Army was informed. Recently, Costa Nano was demobilized by the Army and was appointed a doctor at the City Polyclinic.
A Hungarian agronomist named Edi Çeliku works in the nursery of the local green cleaning company, and this also seems to be activated by the Hungarian embassy. There have been cases where embassy employees have gone to her. During the days when there was confusion in the distribution of bread, which in meetings with workers, they were asked whether they provided the bread or not. The basic organization of the party has been instructed to be careful about its position.
A no less hostile activity is being carried out by the daughter of the Polish commercial attaché, who continues the X grade in the new gymnasium “Sami Frashëri”. The aforementioned propagandizes in favor of revisionism and directly strikes the economic and political line that our party follows and implements. She says: “If you follow the Chinese path, you will never build socialism.” It has been proven that she has taken magazines with decadent foreign art and artists, makes gestures of immorality and propagates everywhere, talking about the loves and evenings she attends with representatives of Yugoslav, Egyptian embassies, etc. Not without purpose she stands in the bank in a provocative position towards the students and tells you that I am a revisionist etc. These days he was expelled from school altogether.
