Museum of Sacrifice, Kalavrita

Exactly 50 years after the Nazi occupation massacred almost 700 male inhabitants over the age of 12 in Kalavryrta, the Museum of Sacrifice opened its doors to honour the fallen. The massacre happened in December 1943 in retribution for the killing of 81 German soldiers captured by the resistance. Only 13 of the 696 men survived, and the Government of Germany has made some efforts of atoning for the Third Reich’s atrocities. Today the museum stands for world peace. education and cooperation. It houses belongings of those killed, historical documents, photographs, artworks relating to the sad event, creating a unique opportunity to remind us of the unpleasant the not-so-distant past and reflect on how today the Germans and Greeks have cultivated close ties indeed.
