Did you know that: - Winston Churchill was really close to become victim of a plan to blow up a whole hotel that still exists in the centre of Athens? - You can visit the place where fighters of liberty were kept and tortured by the Nazis and see the actual notes they were leaving on the walls? - Athenians demonstrate up to this day on the very same streets where their ancestors were demonstrating against their conquerors? - In the WW II in Athens you could find casinos around the city for foreign soldiers and Greek collaborators? - The Athenians had no coffee due to the war and were making “coffee” from chickpeas, a beverage that you stiill have a chance to taste? - You can visit the "dark neighborhood" of the Greek nazi collaborators? Athens is well known for its ancient history. But in the cities contemporary history lies an enormous amount of incidents that have sealed modern Greek's love for democracy and freedom. Greeks fought many times to defend their way of living and peoples’ rights. Monuments and places of these struggles, lie hidden throughout the city’s center. During this alternative walk, which differs from the typical touristic ones, we offer you the chance to visit the most monumental of these spots and learn about heroic stories, get a feeling of the everyday life of that time and understand the way these facts have affected the character of modern Greeks.
We are George, Stavros and Katerina, a group of local young social scientists, thrilled by the way that an everyday walk in the city of Athens can bring someone so close to the actual places of so many recent historical events. We want to pass this exact sentiment to the people who visit Athens, to help them realize that the city has far more to show than its ancient heritage. We have also created this project in order to raise money for our PhD studies and organize scientific congresses on the contemporary history of Greek people and the relationship between cities’ structures and social procedures.
