BESA A True Story by Pertef Bylykbashi
Pertef Bylykbashi, author
Besa recounts my life from a young boy of a happy three generation family living in southern Albania, but when Enver Hoxha and his Communist regime muscled their way into power, that idyllic life fell apart for the Bylykbashi family, our village, and our country. BESA spans from my childhood to present day, touching on various aspects of my life, both personal and business. It is a story of promises made to my mother the night before I escaped from the labor camp and gave my Besa that I would never stop fighting to free my family from the bonds of communism - a fight that continues even today.
