“How does one speak about one’s own death” (Primo Levi)

Through contemporary witness reports, the Nazi crimes in Greece are presented comprehensively and from diverse perspectives. Contemporary witnesses from a variety of backgrounds have been interviewed for the project “Memories of the Occupation of Greece,” allowing a variety of experiences to be documented from different angles. Reports come, for example, from Jews who were in hiding, Shoah survivors, people who were arrested during raids in Athens or other places and deported to Germany, members of the resistance, and the survivors of massacres.
