75 years ago today ...

Memorial Day for Skiathos ...

75 years since the burning of Skiathos


The Mayor of Skiathos, Mr. Dimitrios Prevezanos, invites you to the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the burning of Skiathos by the German occupation troops on August 23, 1944

09:00 - Divine Liturgy at the Temple of the Three Hierarchs.

10:00 - Doctrine of the Nazi Threat

10:30 - Wreath laying at the memorial by El Greco

This morning, locals and strangers alike will be walking the streets of the town, enjoying the colour and fun of Skiathos. Hopping on boats in the old harbour, waiting for the ferry. Probably totally unaware of what happened here, on a glorious summer day, just like this one. 

When the boats arrived from Volos - 75 Years ago today ...
