THE DAMAGING LEGACY OF COMMUNISM
Tirana, Albania, April 7-9, 2017
SPEAKER BIOS

“Communism must be reckoned in crude mathematic terms the most murderous system ever devised by human intelligence; and yet this is an argument we have to have, generation after generation. Consider this; one third of American millennials believe that more people were murdered by George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin. This is not an argument we can take for granted.”

Sali Berisha

Sali Ram Berisha, born 15 October 1944, is an Albanian cardiologist and university professor who abandoned his career to become the leader of the Democratic Party after the fall of Communism in the 1990s. He served as the second President of Albania from 1992 to 1997 and Prime Minister from 2005 to 2013. He was also the leader of the Democratic Party of Albania twice, from 1991 to 1992 and then again from 1997 to 2013.  He was the country's first freely elected head of state, and the first non-Communist head of state in 53 years. To date, Sali Berisha is Albania's longest-serving democratically elected leader and the only President of Albania elected to a second term.
