The Hortiatis Holocaust

Το Ολοκαύτωμα του Χορτιάτη

On the 2nd of September 1944, just before its withdrawal from Greece, the Wehrmacht commits one of the most heinous Nazi crimes against humanity. German forces surround Hortiatis, unleashing their Greek collaborators, the infamous “Schubert supporters” upon the village’s residents. Before long, 146 people - mostly women and children - are brutally murdered, some of whom were burned alive in the local oven. In this documentary, the only two survivors from the martyr's oven recount those tragic hours of the holocaust.
