Overview
For over three-hundred years, the Qafa family name has been synonymous with fighting for Albanian independence. Since the 1600's, Qafa men have lost their lives and taken lives fighting against the Ottoman Turks, the Yugoslavian Serbs, and the communists. Simon Qafa tells the story of Pjeter Cup Qafa, his father who was known as "the legend of the mountains" for his role as one of the most important freedom fighters of his day. Simon's life is chronicled here with a roller coaster journey from his childhood in Albania and Kosovo, the seminary in Rome, prison in New York, and as a family man and active advocate against communism
