  • Really a place that ties your stomach to a knot. It leaves you mixed feelings for those who left then, but also for those who were (expelled). I would have one more point if it were just for the fact that they were letting you take pictures.

  • ... Spotlight of the Holocaust of Kalavryta. The museum has a section with few exhibits for the city of Kalavryta but overall focuses on the slaughter of 500 people by German Nazis. The entrance is on the pedestrian walkway and the ticket costs 6 euros for adults and is free for children up to 12 years old. They are usually open until 16:00 and 30-45 ' are enough to see it.

  • Very well documented Museum (Greek and English) which presents the place of Greece in the second world war, living conditions in the region of Kalavryta under occupation, resistance in the Peloponnese and especially in the region of Kalavryta, the reaction of the German army against resistance and in particular the day of 13 December 1943 in Kalavryta. The Museum is in the same school where the village population was collected that day. From there, men and boys over 13 years old were taken to Kapi Hill dominating the village, from where they attended the school fire and the destruction of the village before being executed. Testimonials (photos, videos, objects,...) are very moving. I advise to go then to the Memorial erected on the Hill of Kapi.
