Angela, Melpo, Ariadne… Each stood on the opposite side of the other yesterday, yet today they stand side by side. Women and mothers of the Civil War, tragic figures, symbols and signs of bitter times. Living history drawn on their faces, in their eyes, in their hearts. Following the civil anguish in the battlefields, another civil anguish moves into people’s lives, into their relationships, their friendships, their families. Black scarves and thousands of absences on the one hand, red flags and hundreds of executions on the other. Scylla and Charybdis. Post Civil War right wing rule and authoritarian communist regimes, refugees, terror, politics, child gatherings, persecutions, prisons and exiles. A people divided into two, bleeding, on its knees. A people sacrificed; an irrational sacrifice with no winners or losers, no victims or victimizers. But also a people who fight with all their might to stand on their own two feet and raise their eyes. A people who progress through times of memory to stand tall, stand bold and to see hope ahead. The Greek people.
