9781523395835: The Miseries of Occupation:: A Child Survivor Remembers

In 1941 the Nazis invaded and subsequently occupied Greece. Iasona, the central character of this poignant memoir, was six years old at the time. From that point on, Iasona found himself struggling to survive one perilous event after another—whether it was harrowing ordeals with the Nazis, getting lost in a forest surrounded by guerrilla factions, or escaping to a cave with his mother and siblings to hide from enemy troops—Iasona navigates these dangerous times with a combination of determination and guile. These trials, however, pale next to the tragedy that befalls his father, Leonidas, who is captured and held prisoner by Nazi collaborators.

About the Author:

Konstantinos Koskoletos is a child survivor of the World War II Nazi occupation of Greece. In “Miseries of Occupation” he traces the mystery surrounding how his father came to be falsely accused of a crime and then executed with sixteen others at the hands of his fellow countryman. Despite his war-torn childhood, he graduated from the Archimedes Engineering Academy in Piraeus, emigrated to America where he founded an engineering firm, and at 80, retired, he is now chronicling his memories of those early years.
