40 A Coming of Age: A Ibania under Enver Hoxha Enver Hoxha and the entire leadership of the Party of Labor felt betrayed by Khrushchev's rapprochement with Tito. Not only had the U. S. S. R. failed to take into account Albania's interests but it had not even bothered to consult with Hoxha prior to Khrushchev's visit to Belgrade. Hoxha believed that Albania should have been consulted concerning a possible rapprochement with Yugoslavia considering Albania's position at the head of the anti-Yugoslav movement in the Soviet bloc.

34 The First Congress of the Albanian Communist Party was held in Tiranë from November 8 to 22, 1948. The name of the Party was changed to the Albanian Party of Labor. 35 Yugoslavia, as one might well imagine, vehemently denounced the decision by Enver Hoxha to reject Albania's alliance with Yugoslavia. Hoxha was considered a traitor to those who had helped him. These sentiments were felt by many people of each of Albania's former allies after a break in diplomatic relations had occurred. Ranko Petkovic, a Yugoslav analyst, proposed an interesting explanation for the motivation behind Enver Hoxha's split with Yugoslavia: Enver Hoxha saw in the campaign against Yugoslavia a favourable opportunity to consolidate his autocratic rule in the Albanian party and state.

Enver Hoxha gives an account of his first meeting with the Soviets after Stalin's death in June 1953 in his book, The Khrushchevites. Hoxha said: My conclusion from this meeting was unpleasant. I saw that the leadership of the Soviet Union was ill-disposed towards our country. 6 An example of the coming changes that would take place after Stalin's death occurred in the Party itself. Deputy Prime Minister Tuk Jakova and the Minister of Education Bedri Spahiu attacked Hoxha in the April 1955 Plenum of the Central Committee of the Albanian Party of Labor for being too harsh in his policy-making and for not allowing any free debate within the Party on important issues.
