Bobostitcha Cemetary in Albania Continues Burning Stefanas

The memorial service in Bobostitcha that has taken place for years in order for the great battle given by Greece to prevent the forces of Axis to access to be honored, as stated by the Greek Foreign Minister representative Gregory Delavekouras.  He was responding to questions that have been posed for the burning of stephanas at the cemetery, a very “worrying and reprehensible phenomenon”.

“It is an unacceptable phenomenon and only represents some people who lack the ability to understand not only the new relations framework between Greece and Albania, but also the symbolism of the battle to prevent the Axis forces”, a representative said.

As for the intergovernmental agreement for cemeteries, the Greek and Albania governments have expressed their satisfaction and only need to conclude its application, as pre agreed, the representative added.


  1. Sorry what greek soldiers?? I am born and bred in Korca my grandfather fought against the faschists and nazis between 1941-1945, he never mentioned of any greek soldiers fighting along the side them. There were no greek soldiers in Boboshtica and also that’s not the point. The point is, where the big memorial cross is built (with funds of the Greek consulate) has destroyed the old graves of the cemetry that were there for centuries. What kind of respect feeling does that express??
    We are good neighbours and we want to have a very friendly relation with our neighbours but please don’t try to influence( in a negative way) our church, our politics and our lives.
