Land of Martyrs and Heroes
With the completion of 50 years since the holocaust of Kalavryta (December 13th, 1943) we have been given the opportunity to publish a book Kalavryta, Land of Martyrs and Heroes) (pg 133 + 32 color photographs). In these pages we present this book and everything in relation to the history of the town and the area around Kalavryta, from the ancient years till today, paying special attention to the events of the tragic day of December 13th 1943, (massacre of the inhabitants by the Nazi army during the Occupation), as well as presenting the churches and country chapels of the area, while including information on public services, foundations, sights of interest for the tourists, useful telephones and everything relating to Kalavryta today.
This book, as it was expected, became a great success with the public and was reprinted in the same year. Yet, as it was stated, our multipaged Greek edition could not be useful to the manyforeign visitors that come to our district in big numbers. For that reason we have prepared this edition, so that a handy, though short, informative leaflet would be available to our foreign visitors.
We heartily welcome them and wish them a pleasant and re refreshing varation in our blessed land of martyrs.
