TIRANA, October 2
The 13th edition of the German October also known as the weeks of the German-Albanian culture will start this Saturday. Gur, gur behet ure (von Mauren zu Brücke) is the motto of this edition of the German October that will offer numerous events in seven Albanian cities.
The program includes music, cinema, theater, literature, visual arts, and critical debate.
German Ambassador to Tirana Peter Zingraf said in his greeting that we must ask ourselves how to overcome old and new obstacles. He added that the goal of the German October is to build bridges between Albanians and Germans.
October 9th will mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and this is the reason why the motto of the German October is ‘gur, gur behet ure’ (stone by stone you build a bridge).
The citizens of Tirana, Shkodra, Vlora, Kamza, Korca, Pogradec, and Durres and all can find the list of events scheduled to take place in their cities HERE.
