In Germany, very little is known about the German occupation of Greece. In Greece, however, the occupation and the crimes committed remain very present. For the project “Memories of the Occupation of Greece” at least 70 biographical interviews with Greek contemporary witnesses will be filmed. Their memories of the occupation will be preserved for the future and edited for presentation on the internet.
“The Second World War remains invisible for the visitors who flow into Greece during the summer, relaxing on the sunny beaches or getting accustomed to the ancient ruined temples and theaters. But for those who know where to look, behind the fences of the old abandoned Jewish villas, the scars from the wounds of the Nazi occupation era still exist.”
