Congress of Lushnje
The Congress of Lushnjë (Albanian: Kongresi i Lushnjës) was a conference of Albanian political leaders held from January 28 to January 31, 1920 in Lushnjë, Albania.
Its objective was to deal with the issues arising from the military control of the country by mainly Italian and secondarily French troops and its political leadership by the pro-Italian Durrës-based government. Held in the residence of Kaso Fuga it was attended by 56 delegates from Albania, adjacent Albanian-inhabited territories and representatives of Albanian emigrant colonies.
Aqif Elbasani was elected president of the congress and Ferit Vokopola secretary. The congress declared the Durrës government invalid and formed a new cabinet under Sulejman Delvina. The new government consisted of the High Council (Albanian: Këshilli i Lartë) the National Council (Albanian: Këshilli Kombëtar). The last decision of the congress was the designation of Tiranë as the new capital of Albania. The congress's decisions would eventually lead a few months later to the Vlora War and as a result to the total withdrawal of the Italian army from Albania and the final affirmation of the country's territorial integrity in 1921. The building where it was held became a museum in 1970.

The town was founded in late medieval times by a Turkish widow called Salushe. She built a rest stop on the road from Durrës to Berat, giving birth to the town. As of 2000, old men still called the town Salushe. In January 1920, Lushnje was a provisional capital of Albania and the place of the Congress of Lushnje. Chieftains of Albania assembled in the town and declared Tirana first a provisional and then the definitive capital of Albania. The Lushnje district is known as a main provider of agricultural products to the rest of the country. It is one of very few field districts of mountainous Albania. During the Communist Regime the town had a number of factories: among them food processing and building materials, which were closed down for one reason or another in the aftermath of the fall of Communism. 3 km away from Lushnje is the Savra Field. This field is on the Lushnje-Fier road. Here the first battle between Principality of Zeta and Ottoman Empire occurred in 1385 (the Battle of Savra). In this battle Balsha II was killed. Along with Fier, Lushnje was the main district of the concentration camps during the Communist Regime; some of the camps included the villages of Savër, Gradishtë, Bedat, Gjazë, Rrapëz, Plug, etc. (Wikipedia)

God's Secret Listener: Anniversary of Berti's momentous move
Forty-four years ago this month ten-year-old Berti Dosti arrived in Lushnje after having already lived in six homes as his father had been moved all around the country by the Albanian Army. He was probably hoping for some stability, but even Berti did not expect in December 1967 for this medium sized industrial, lowland town to be home for the next 44 years and the base for his amazing Christian ministry.
