When Ignorance and Savagery Prevailed
By: Veledin Heri
About the Book
Up until the age of eight, Veledin Heri lived like a little prince. But in 1944 the Communist regime came and took over his homeland of Albania. In this heart-wrenching memoir, Veledin recounts his childhood and being under constant attack of the Communist forces and the heroism of the rebel forces in his small town and within his own family. At fifteen, his father was forced to give up the family’s land and together they were drafted to work for the Communist forces.
Filled with heartbreak and small moments of levity, Veledin shares with the world a small corner’s struggle that is often ignored in the grand scheme of history.
