Thanks to his rare talent and patriotic consciousness, Ismail Kadare earned the privileged status of a social and identity emancipator during his lifetime. A pioneer in style and language, together with Mother Teresa, he became an international emblem of Albania and the Albanians of modern times.

Ismail Kadare will always be remembered with respect as a promoter, like no other, of national pride, especially the European orientation of the Albanian nation.

Farewell, our great one!”

This is the message from President Bajram Begaj of the Republic of Albania.
