Memory Days 2017

On 16 to 23 November 2017 will be held the 2nd edition of MEMORY DAYS activity, with the known motto "Memory as a Mission". The aim of this project is stimulating public dialogue in dealing with Albania's dictatorial past.


Our motivation to continue working on this subject is reinforced by the findings of an OSCE survey published at the end of 2016, according to which a large part of the Albanian society have a positive perception about the communist regime and the political leaders of that time. Organization of MEMORY DAYS comes again as a project of the Institute for Democracy, Media & Culture (IDMC) in partnership with Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS).

Among the various activities to take place this year is:

1.The international conference "Between Apathy and Nostalgia: Public and private recollections of communism in contemporary Albania", 17‒18 November.

2.A study trip to sites of memory, 19 November

3."Law and Justice" symposium, 20 November, Rogner Hotel

4.Presentation of research works on the dictatorship, 21 November

5.Public reading of "Musine Kokalari file", 21 November

6.Youth Forum on Oral History, 22 November

7.Awarding of the "Ask Your Grandparents 2" competition winners, 23 November

8."Propaganda During the Dictatorship" exhibition will be open during Memory Days
