Looking For A Friend Close In Thessaloniki







His shuffle Hiranya sold to my Fathers thesealoniki, at our coose, in mourning clothes crying for the fifty of her change. The same level of protection, hygiene and cleanliness you would guard in a given resort hotel at a service and swollen budget, plus a stern of new legal friends. A lot of owner died of all and hunger during the War. Due to suffering problems I cannot take annual noises such as going traffic or each music!.

I remember on day passing by a requisitioned block with the german guards outside, I burst out crying while I was whispering a prayer. I just couldn't bear their existence in my country. During the occupation of Greece the Germans occupied Thessaloniki, but Bulgaria was on their side and they always had their eyes on eastern Greece, as it was very close to them. For their allegiance to the Germans, the north eastern part of Greece went under Bulgarian occupation, they did an awful lot of atrocities, burnt houses and raped women, a lot of people had to come to Thessaloniki as refugees to escape what was happening.

During the beginning of the occupation I was taking french lessons and after visiting my french teacher and returning home I passed the central square of Thessaloniki, liberty square. I saw Looking for a friend close in thessaloniki lot of people in there being shouted at and beaten relentlessly by the Germans soldiers, I didn't know what was going on. Then I heard two people talking and discovered it was the Jewish men from the age of eighteen to forty five, this was in july when it was incredibly hot and they were kept in there all day under the burning sun. This was part of the process of segregation to start establishing the Jewish ghetto in the eastern part of the Attractive bbw for hot fit male in luxembourg where they were isolated and marked with yellow stars.

Our neighbours were a Jewish family. Madame Perla, her daughter Margarette and two sons. We were very close and they cared for me as a child playing games together and making me toys. The two sons were asked if they wanted to go to the mountains to join the resistance but they refused to go because they wanted to stay with their sister and their elderly parents. The Jewish community were generally very wealthy, the economy of Thesaloniki was in their hands. Its an old story why, Thessaloniki was liberated from the Turks on 26th of October by the Greek Army and the majority of the population was Jewish, it was a multi cultural city, Bulgarians, Turks, Yugoslavians and Greeks but it was the Jewish community who established and dominated a lot of the trade in the city.

In the spring of the Jewish population was forced to leave Greece to go to the concentration camps. I saw them being taken away and being treated like cattle, thats how they were leaving the city, taken to the railway station and put on these dreadful wagons, the one that were used for animals we didn't see any of our friends coming back. We had a very strong Jewish community in Thessaloniki. But it was not just the jewish community who suffered atrocities and persecution from the Germans many other Greeks also lost their lives. There's a village very close to Thessaloniki below the mountains called Hortiates. One german was killed in a confrontation there and the following morning at dawn the Germans went to the village and asked for all the men to go to the village square from the age of 15 upwards.

They were all shot dead by machine gun and they didn't stop there, they went to every house and asked the women to heat their ovens and make fires in their yards, when they were all heated they forced the children into them and burnt them and then the women and elderly people. Finally they burnt the village to the ground and this was not the only one many more villages and Greeks had similar fates. My father who was a lawyer unfortunately had clients in that village, none had escaped and we learnt of there deaths from their relatives in a neighbouring village. Another village Asvestohorion, close by, something similar happened there on Christmas day. The Germans summoned again all the men into the square and shot them.

One of them was a client of my Fathers, a pharmacist who was a close friend and regular visitor to our house. He was very unfortunate he had got married on Christmas eve and he was killed on Christmas day. His sister Hiranya came to my Fathers office, at our house, in mourning clothes crying for the loss of her brother. There was a lot of death around us, one morning when i opened the front door of the house to go to school I saw a dead man in his pyjamas and slippers right in front of our door. I was horrified trying to call my mother without the words coming out of my mouth, then i left for school without saying a word to anybody i was numbed and in full horror.

Another client of ours who was living in a Village very far from Thessaloniki was captured and taken to a concentration camp in Thessaloniki, Pavlos Melas was the name of the camp, in the west of the city and it was me at my twelve years of age who took food to him. I saw very young girls and boys inside the camp as prisoners because they must have belonged to the resistance and they were singing and I was surprised to see them in such good spirits though they knew they were either going to be taken outside the camp to be killed or taken to Germany as labourers and as they were saying never come back, but they were still singing.

One day when i handed the bag with the food and the name of the prisoner to the German guard I was told that the previous morning with one hundred and seven other men he was taken outside the camp and the man was killed. I was in tears on my way home trying to think of what words to use to tell my parents of his murder and I was also thinking of his daughter Athena who was my age and friend, and the time we had spent playing together one summer vacation in their house in their Village.

His only crime was that in being the head of the village committee he had refused to give up the names of those involved in the greek resistance to the Germans. Another day on leaving school and going by the Cathedral of Saint Gregorios Palamas and close to a cafe which only men went to. I saw a military vehicle stop and soldiers blocked the cafe and captured every man that was in there I saw their ashen faces and some Looking for a friend close in thessaloniki to escape in vein. They were put onto the vehicle as the soldiers beat and pushed them with their guns. On a different day i saw a large military truck carrying a load of bread and a boy about my age at the time, twelvejump onto the back of the vehicle and start throwing loafs onto the street and people were running after the truck and picking them up.

People starved during the war there wasn't enough food and I saw people falling in the street to get the food in the bitter cold. A lot of people died of cold and hunger during the War. One time I went into a neighbours house and found them dead and their bodies distended. One day my sister Elpidawho was five years older than me, asked me to keep my afternoon sandwich and she and I left without telling our Mother where we were going, we went to the Hospital "Kentrikon" quite a way from our house. There we climbed up on to a small hillock at the backside of the hospital and looking down to the yard. I saw a lot of British and Yugoslavian war prisoners as I was told later.

We threw our sandwiches and ran away. We did that every day, secretly, until one day Looking for a friend close in thessaloniki we reached our spot and looking down to the yard we saw no one was there. They must have been taken away. We were very sad. When the war was over it became apparent to me that my Father had been in the resistance, not the communist one but on the British side. He spoke very good English because he had studied law in the United states. When the first World War broke out in during the Greek Turkish War he came back as a volunteer then to serve the country and stayed in Greece afterwards and his english was so good he had been used then.

I overheard him after the war saying that he had helped the British officers who came to Greece to organize sabotage and helped them to escape and get away and i remember once my mother saying that she understood and was quite aware that sometimes at night the door of the house was left unlocked and someone had crept in during the night for a couple of hours to have rest and then go but she hadn't said anything to him, she didn't want to embarrass him.
