Father Klement Miraj (1882-1956) was falsely accused by the Albanian Communists of maintaining links with the German National Socialists during the war.
During World War II, the newly formed Albanian #Communist Party had slyly and slowly taken control of the Albanian government until they grabbed control of the country, in November of 1944.
Enver Hoxha became the Party's first secretary, on November 8, 1944, and he reigned over a brutal regime, which targeted intellectuals and members of the Catholic Church, especially priests.
Communism, which posed and poses a global danger, manipulates the masses with its ideology of Socialism in which lawlessness becomes the law, so that the masses are controlled by fear.
Father Miraj was arrested in 1952 and sentenced to 20 years in prison and forced labor. He died in Burrel Prison on November 21, 1956.
