Today we are gathered to remember and honor the figure and work of Prof. Milan Shuflaj, a dedicated scientist, passionate scholar of history, balkanologist, but above all a albanologist par excellence.

On February 18, 1931, just days after hi left Albania, prof. Shufflay was criminally murdered. Much has been written about this event that shocked the international opinion, but one fact remains significant - after the terrorist attack, also his studies disappeared. His murder has a direct goal and a clear objective - stopping his activity. In this period, Prof. Shufflay was at the peak of studies on the Albanians and their history, under a contract with King Zog. This study was valuable not only for Albanians, but also of the History of other Balkan peoples.

Despite Prof. Shufflay did not finished his work on the history of Albanians, he left many publications of inalienable value; meanwhile, his professional and civic courage tare a source of inspiration for new generations.


On this day we bow with respect and gratitude before his work and memory. Prof Shufflay will always be remembered as a good friend of Albanians and one Albanologists occupied a respectful place in the History of the Albania.
