The flag of Albania is red with a black double headed eagle
Pal lived in Durres, Albania
Albania experienced revolts on 1910-1912
Revolts were a reaction of the new centralization policies of the Young Turk Ottoman government in Albania
Pal lived in Durres, Albania that was close to the shore, so he didn't have to walk long to get on a boat.
Pal got on the boat and went to third class, or the steerage
A lot of his belongings were stolen from him on the trip
Pal crossed the Atlantic ocean
On the boat Pal met Zora Novak. They fell in love, but unfortunately Zora was not granted permission to enter the U.S.A
1912 the first Balkan War occurred
Albanian leaders were encouraged to declare independence of their state
During World War I, the new Albania state collapsed
War ended and the Albanian Territory was divided with Italian, Serbian, Greek and French military occupation
Ellis Island for Pal
When Pal gets off his ship he waits in line at Ellis Island in the Great Hall. The hall was so big to him, he had never seen a room this big before. Zora, his future love was a few spots in front of Pal in the line. After a few minutes she came back and was crying. She had the small pox and was to go back to Siberia. Pal was granted access to the U.S, but his last name was changed to Albania. He couldn't understand the language, so Pal couldn't correct the people who were recording his name. He walked into the U.S happier than ever.
