Once Upon a Time in Greece : an anthology of historical short stories from 1900 to 1930
Philological Association of Thessaloniki
The book includes short stories by members of the Philological Association of Thessaloniki which revolve around real social events - events that took place in Greece in the period 1900-1930. It is the period when Eleftherios Venizelos' modernist slogans appeared in the foreground of the political history of the country. In the midst of both the Balkan Wars and the First World War, the country expanded its borders. "Greece of two continents and five seas" takes on flesh and blood, only to end in the destruction of Smyrna and the uprooting of Hellenism from its ancestral homes in Asia Minor and Pontus. It is the moment when the early bourgeoisie is formed and the still immature characteristics of the working class are shaped. The arrival of refugees and the mixing of cultural realities create new demands in social life. The policies of the past no longer meet the needs of the present, which is changing at the speed of light.
