Communist Albania developed a perfidious propaganda tool: the "Letters of the People". Without having to deal with bureaucratic obstacles, every citizen could personally address the First Secretary of the "Party of Labour" by writing him a letter. These letters, which were actually read by state security, do not only give unique insights into the reality of socialism. They reveal how Albania's denied past is shaping its present.
