Albanian: Monument to the WWII Germans

Our Man in Tirana posts photos from the German WWII Memorial located in a park in the Albanian capital; an anonymous Albanian comments: “I find the nazi memorial insulting, to be honest. These people came to our country to kill and burn and we're raising them a memorial? My grandfather's house in Berat was burned to the ground by this “young angels”, as were many other historical houses in Berat and all over Albania. How about the village of Borova, that was wiped off the map, with everyone in the village killed and every house burned, will the government raise them a memorial? Maybe not, since they're only Albanians.”
