A view from the Sigurimi headquarter in Shkodër

An empty room, with no furniture, and with its walls partly demolished.
The repressions of the regime took place through the action of its police, called "Sigurimi": in thse rooms political prisoners and dissidents where secluded and tortured. After the fall of the regime, the rage of the people destroyed everything: now, the building that hosted the headquarters of the police is a monastery.
