An agreement signed between the Ministry of Culture and the Albanian-American Development Foundation paved the way for the establishment of the "Albanian Jewish Museum" foundation, an institution that aims to attract funding for the preservation of Albanian history during the dark years of the Holocaust. For the Minister of Culture, Elva Margariti this is a historic step in the new mentality of museum management.
"It is an important step to achieve something that has not been done before in Albania. The Foundation and even the Ministry of Culture is committed to achieve things that have not been done before, to see and preserve the cultural heritage of Albania ", said Margariti.
The Albanian-American Development Foundation has also supported the establishment of the National Museum of the Jews in Vlora, with the aim of building a contemporary 21st century institution that will tell a unique story of coexistence, faith and hope.
