Twenty years of living together is a long enough period in the'
life of amp couple. And it is natural that the loss of one member
has an effect on the other, -
In the specific case of Enver-Ratite, this cohabitation, bee,
besides its qualitative side (a period of 20 years), its quantitative =
side (a period of turbulence that automatically loins the couple in
symbiosis more strongly).
In this compaction, it is worth stressing that the first stage of
this symbiosis belongs to the last years of the occupation end the
partizan wary the second stage belongs to the difficult years for
Enter ten (1945-1948) Yugoslav pressure, always rising, was aiming
at his replacement in the No 1 poet of the Albanian Cammudst Party
with goal Imam in this second stage, the support, chiefly moral, of
Flmcbmije to Enter, her spouse, has been enotradrdinarily important
,(it was being said in this connection in Tirana that at that time

of the U3SR Concerning the Situation in the Yugoslav Communiet Pea-Ur," -
which preceded the resolution of June 1948 and the Belgrade -Moscov

to Enter Hosts by the Soviet ambassador in Albania, were made known
indetailbyEnverIkedatohie wife a long time before they became
known to the Central Committee of the Albanian Communist Partn itwas determined that time in Tirana that Enver made those Letters

and Bedri Spahiu, and third, he laid them officially and openlyCIICU I

before the Central Committee for discussion). The third stage
includes the absolute triumph of Enver Borba over loci Tome, that is,
the time that passed frost the First Congress of tint Party, but at the
same time, this stage includes also the rivalry of Enver %As and
Mehmet Shahs (in this connection it is worth stressing that eMe)metist"
elements have never bden received or placed in the apparatus of the
Propaganda ant agitation. of the Central Committee, which has been
continually directed by Nexhmije Heaths, in fact they have been
parpoesly kept far away from this important Directorate). The foam%
stage belongs to the period that began with the Tirana-Moecov schism
and in this period, naturally, the Hccoba-Shelza rivalry, understandably,
loess its intensity. (Also in. this phase, all indications show that
Nexhadja has,reemined at the side of her husband.)
In the Eirrer-Nexlmaje symbiosis, in my opinion, the stronger element,
the, more powerful member has been Enver. And this because of his more

the break in relations with Mukja during the weir; the abandonment of
Tito and the open war against him; the last schism with Mosdow, all
these are attributed primarily to Enver le insistence.
On her part, his wife Matadi' has never been so much a person
of bo/d actions; rather than a wean of action, she has been a person
dip soon yields to the pressures of others; rather than a leader in
real polities -- a business wean -- perhaps (she has been] the most
intellectual woman that the Albanian Comaronist Party has had. 17rammally
self-taught, she in very fond of books. Durirrg the second stage,
the story goes, Nashije Duna had taken annoyer, was a member of
the Central Committee, end the "Benjamin" [favorite] of Loci Iwo;
also at the time of the Tiream-Hoectni schism, some data show that
both she and Sh)hmet t s wife (Piveto Sheht) were shaken am/ showed sign*
of fear and absoiescing their posts.
As a conclusion, one repeat* that in the inveranimije symbiosis,
Enver was the decisive member of the pair.
Hence, I do not believe that the eventual loss of Nexhmije will
bring outstanding changes in Moses position, so much the more since
the latter, basically, is not very much of a sentimental man. The
outstanding characteristic of Enver U the disproportionate adoration
of his "ego." This *ego " doee . not leave much room for others;:-although
these others include his spouse with Yamaha has lived together for 20
whole years, through days good and bad, troubled end peacefUl, dangerous
However, the loss of Nexhmije will have some offset, even at second
or third hand, on the person of Enver.

Enver Ally ally had to open his heart somethmes, sometimes to be
supported morally, sometimes to mourn his plight or to discuss his plans
and desires. Amore suitable person than his wife, that Is, Nembeije,
could not be found., Let us not forget in this connection the well known
, psychological factor, bed, darkness, and feeling of oneness. It is
quite natural, then, that Nexhmije has been for 20 years the complete
personal "confessor of Enver, the depository full of his secrets.
The retry nature of Nexhmije seemed to help Enter make confessions.
In truth, in ray opinion, Neshmije Naost has been a most meek person with
understanding and comprehension for the troubles of others. In the
biograPhy that I have given previously about her , person, fled noted
among other things: "Consider how one of the most liberal members of
the Central Comedttee... polite andapproachable...different from most
of her colleagues, enjoyed a kind of fellow feeling ("sympathy") among

her husband, had a kind of influence, hoverer ahmall, on the acts and

Perhaps, in the absence of a person who was very close to him
(with the eventual disappearance of Nembmije), he will seek elsewhere
some moral ard psychological =met. NatnrelY, Just now, in the
immediate future, I personally exclude the possibility that Sneer
will seek this support in a woman. Certainly, at his Present ale
