HAEMUS part of the project: Sur les pas d’Albert Londres


In august 2015 a group of 12 young journalists from France and Balkan countries were in Macedonia for a travelling seminar to follow the experience of World War I correspondent Albert Londres.

Six seasoned French journalists mentor the young participants in the project that will also travel to Albania and visit places where Londres reported from during the war. Londres also wrote a book on the Macedonian movement for creating an independent country. In his career he also reported from early Communist Russia and Asian countries.
