A collection of photographs taken by a German photographer during the wartime occupation in Greece in World War II (1941 – 1944) are on display in the historical heart of Athens.
Presented by the Ministry of Culture, the exhibition sheds light on Nazi propaganda at the time, as captured by a German soldier stationed in Athens during WWII. The photographs were later bequeathed to the soldier’s family who eventually went on to sell the pictures to Greek collector Byron Mitou.
This exhibition will be held in the 17th century Fethiye Mosque that is located inside the Roman Agora. The mosque was recently restored and reopened to the public in 2017 and used as a space to host cultural events.
