Greek Premiere of the Requiem for the Nazi Victims (oratorio)

Greek Premiere of the Requiem for the Nazi Victims (oratorio)

Under the auspices of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Mr Prokopios Pavlopoulos

The painful memories of the Occupation in spite of the passage of time remain alive. Nazi Germany was primarily responsible for the extent of the disasters and extreme ferocity that our country experienced during the Occupation of 1941-1944, sometimes to bend the Resistance, and sometimes because the Nazi's strategic and tactical choices meant irresistibly death and disaster for the Greek people. Violence and destruction still await vindication and reparation.

In many cases, violence has exceeded every limit, though very few of the terrible historical episodes are known to the general public. Kandanos (3/6/1941), Kommeno (16/8/1943), Viannos (14-16 / 9/1943), Dervenohoria (October 1943), Kalavrita (13/12/1943) Distomo (10/6/1944), Hortiatis (2/9/1944), and dozens of other Martyr Cities and Villages, were indelibly marked by the destruction the occupying forces inflicted, destroying people and flattening entire settlements.

Requiem for the Nazi Victims confronts the traumas of the past to find redemption and preserve remembrance.

H.E. The President of the Hellenic Republic Mr Prokopios Pavlopoulos will attend the event.
