Memorie.al publishes three unknown photos from the beginning of the ’70s, with images that were fixed on celluloid after the end of a large military exercise, which began to develop intensively from the end of 1968, a few months after the Soviet Union of that time, carried out military aggression, invading Czechoslovakia. As can be seen from the high quality photos in question, it clearly shows most of the communist leadership of the time, starting with members of the Politburo, the Council of Ministers, and some of the highest communist hierarchs of members of the Central Committee of the ALP, to the main leaders of the judiciary (or as they were otherwise known at the time, as the bodies of the ‘Dictatorship of the Proletariat’), such as the State Security, the General Prosecutor’s Office, the Court Senior, Investigative etc.
In this military exercise that is thought to belong to December 1972, or January 1973 and held in the area of Biz Martanesh in addition to the four main figures of the Politburo (Enver Hoxha, Hysni Kapos, Kadri Hazbiu, and Ramiz Alia), have posed nearly 100 senior exponents of the Albanian communist regime of that time, starting from the Prime Minister, ministers, and deputy ministers, secretaries of the Central Committee of the Albanian Labor Party, secretaries of the Party Committees of different districts of the country , senior military of the Ministry of Defense, and the Ministry of Interior, heads of the judiciary, etc.
In the center of the photos, it is clear Prime Minister Mehmet Shehu, (in the center of the group) and on both his sides come: Beqir Balluku, Haki Toska, Adil Çarçani, Hito Çako, Sulejman Baholli, Aranit Çela, Petrit Dume, Kiço Ngjela, Koço Theodhosi, Mihallaq Ziçishti, Llambi Ziçishti, Pirro Dodbiba, Bato Karafili, Myqerem Fuga, Xhafer Spahiu, Dhori Panariti, Spiro Koleka, Rita Marko, Abdyl Këllezi, Nesti Nase, Shefqet Peçi, Manrah Verftman, R Manush Myftiu, R , Milo Qirko, Rebani Shehu, Andon Sheti, Spiro Shalësi, Ernest Jakova, Shefqet Musaraj, etc. These photos were never made public at the time, and in addition to clothing (sweaters, boots, coats, coats, etc.) which at the time were available only to the top communist leadership and for lower-level military were “forbidden apples”, a one of the main reasons is thought to have been the training site, which was and was kept “Top secret, of special importance” and the other reason was because most of the participants in these photos, in later years, would be hit, or were eliminated by the communist regime./Memorie.al
