  • Product Description

    Having the capital of few habitants and low houses as its background, the book ‘Collateral Damages’: Childhood Years in Athens during the Occupation and Civil War by Maria Karavia narrates a dramatic personal story, one of the thousands that scarred people’s lives during those times. Though badly injured from the German Occupation and the lethal fights during the so-called “December Riots” (Dekemvriana), Athens still keeps her magic.

    The writing follows the memory’s course. Random incidents come up and shed a different light to persons that were in the foreground. The immigration that followed the Liberation, the settling of people of the province to the city centers, because of the civil war that still raged on the mountains, give to the memories of a child the value of a testimony for a gloomy period of the recent Greek history.
