We made a short stop here to see the memorial to the Distomo massacre. Hard to believe that such atrocities could occur!
We were driving north to Arachova and came upon this memorial. It's all in Greek, so we had a hard time understanding it, but translated it later and came to learn that the Waffen-SS killed 214 men, women and children in the town of Distomo. Very heart rending.
A very sad monument made with the names and ages of the innocent people who were slaughtered by the Nazis in Distomo.
A brutal reminder of the cruelty of war. It should never ever happen to human kind! It's insanity to kill in the name of war!
A sad memorial. A whole village gathered and executed by the nazis in World War 2. These times should never return and educate the people around you for that reason...
