Awards to Enver Hoxha

Recommended Posts

Thank you for another outstanding picture Artan! :cheers:

Is there any clarity on where Enver Hoxha's awards are now? Obviously that would be interesting to know (even if held in a vault) as it would potentially provide an opportunity to get some research on the Soviet Suvorov (?) which would be numbered!

Thanks,

Bob

Bob,

Comrade Hoxha was an hero and a stupid man in the same time. After the crash with Yugoslavian, he send back to Tito all Yugoslavian decorations in signum of protest. He did the same after the crash with comrade Hrusciov, with the soviet medals.

regards,

Artan

p.s.

Tito and Hrusciov were not heroes but not stupid. They did not sent back to our Hoxha the Albanian decorations received from him during the love days.

Ouch - well, I guess he was a true socialist and did not care much about possessions :banger:

Once again, another superb photo, Artan - faleminderit! I was unaware he was awarded a Suvorov, so that's a particularly informative photo.

Thanks again!

Hello gentlemans,

1945-1949, First type: Urdhri HERO KOMBETAR (National Hero Order),

1949-1954, Second type: Urdhri HERO I POPULLIT (Peoples Hero Order),

1954-1990, Star: Titulli HERO I POPULLIT (Peoples Hero Title)

regards,

Artan

Those are fabulous photos! I have seen a picture of the first type and it's illustrated in my book, which came from someone I know from Berlin who went to the Hungarian War Museum. I have never seen them in wear nor knew that there was an intermediate form. This is why sharing this information is important - we're finally documenting and studying these wonderful rarities and placing them in proper context jumping.gif

Is there order of Titulli HERO I POPULLIT in Hungarian War History Museum? Did I miss something wonderful when I visited there in 2010?! :unsure:

He was awarded with the 1st class of the Yugoslav Partisan Star.
I read somewhere that Yugoslavia revoked his decorations after the Tito-Stalin Split in 1948.

I know that photo, it's a cropped version, on full size you can see Georgi Dimitrov on the left. It was probably taken before the Tito-Stalin split which affected relations between Yugoslavia and Albania.
He's also wearing Yugoslav Order of the People's Hero.
