 Albania plaque

A plaque was presented to the Tasmanian community by the then Albanian and Kosovar community during the war in Kosovo when Tasmania hosted in excess of 450 Kosovars before the majority returned to their home country. At the time there was one Albanian family already residing in Tasmania and as a result they became very involved in the settlement and ongoing needs of the new arrivals from Kosovo
