4, Korai str. MEMORIAL SITE 1941-1944
The building which is placed at 4, Korai Str. was built in 1938 by “Τhe Ethniki” Insurance Company. Immediately after the invasion of German troops in Athens, in 1941, it was commanded by the German administration. The basements of the building were used during the German occupation as the Kommandatur detention facility.
In the detention chambers, a large number of spike scriptures and inscriptions of the people who passed through these spaces in the period 1941-1944 are preserved, and through their “narrations”, they have bequeathed an important part of modern history of Greece to the next generations.
The “Memorial Site 1941-1944” functions as a Monument open to the public from Tuesday to Saturday, during the hours: 9:00-14:00.
