The writer Ben Blushi says in the "Open" studio on News 24, he says that if it wasn't for the Nazi occupation of Albania, there would be no communism.
"What would Albania be if it were not for Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy? I say we would not be a communist country. If someone owes us a debt, do you know who it is? Hitler's Nazi Germany. If they hadn't invaded us, we wouldn't be communists, maybe. We became communists as a reaction to the occupier and then we stayed on this side and couldn't leave. The Greeks ran away and we couldn't run anymore," Blushi said, among other things.
