PROGRAM

Oral History Seminars “Elefsina tells her memories”

How was life in our city when factory machines could be heard everywhere? When the smells from the chimneys came into the house? When the workers’ parties were held in the factory yards? Eleusis is changing, the industries are disappearing and the life of the city is changing, but the memories of the people are still alive. Can we take firm steps in the present if we do not know our past?
