A Story That Is Still Unfolding

Visar Malaj's blogpost focuses on documents found in the collection of the EHRI partner Fondazione Centro Di Documentazione Ebraica Contemporanea (CDEC) in Milan during his Conny Kristel Fellowship for his research on the fate of local and foreign Jews in Albania during the Holocaust. Drawing on documents such as the memoirs of Johanna Jutta Neumann, whose family lived in Albania for more than six years, the post shows the experiences of Jews in Albania before and during the Holocaust.
