  • Product Description

    In the book you are holding you can find few pictures from the life in villages of Epirus, which was similar to the rural life in other parts of Greece during the difficult period of the 1960s, when smoke was still coming out of ruined schools, around which you could see starving little children that queued in UNRRA’s breadlines for a little flour and milk, and some rags to cover their bodies.
    The experiences of this decade, during which I served as a young teacher in villages in the area of Ioannina, deeply affected me and shaped my worldview. Later, during the 7-year Dictatorship in Greece, when I was forced to work again as a teacher, I carried with me the experiences of a young woman that had previously worked as a journalist, having developed my ability to judge and appreciate from a different point of view the curriculum offered at urban schools. It was during this period that I worked for 4 years at the Jewish School of Athens in Palaio Psychiko. There I came to know children and parents that were unlike the others I had interacted with, with different interests, and a new world was revealed to me.
    After all this is where the web of life lies, in enhancing our experiences, and recognizing their value.
