Konispol Memorial Visit

INEX President Yohan Byrde and the Vice-President visited the Chameria memorial in Konispol, Albania on 3 July 2017. The memorial was erected by the Albanian government to commemorate the victims of the 1944 expulsion and killings of Chamerians. The memorial shows the names, ages and places of the victims, so they will never be forgotten.

In 1994 the Albanian government declared the atrocities committed against the Cham people a genocide. Each year on the 27th of June a ceremony is held in honor of the fallen.
