Dr. Apostol Kotani tells the story of Jews in Albania from ancient times to the present. But most importantly, he documents what happened in Albania during World War Ii when no Jews were given up to the holocaust even though Albania was occupied by Nazi Germany. Following the ancient Albanian code of Besa, Albanians from all walks of life sheltered Jews in their homes, always treating them as honored guests. Dr. Kotani served as a guide to Norman H. Gershman as he photographed Albanian rescuers for his book, Besa - Muslims Who Saved Jews In World War Ii. Dr. Kotani's research was instrumental to the movie about Mr. Gershman's project, Besa - The Promise. Here is the story of those who were rescued and the Albanians who sheltered them.
