Two Greek professional Journalists, Michalis Tezaris and Yiannis Kemmos, were recording the Greek crisis from 2010 to 2014
The Greeks accepted that the heavy financial austerity measures, that included even closing hospitals and schools, had to face the scorn of Europeans. The citizens of Europe considered the Greeks thieves and Greece a country of lazy people who ate the money of EU subsidies. This is an image that was convenient for the political elite of Greece as well, so that it was always ready to pull the trigger of new measures. The list is long and the numbers may not add up precisely the drama that is prevalent in every household, and surrounds every person individually.
This book presents only a small display, recording only a momentary crisis through 100 photographs of important events and some additional characteristic of 2010-2013 , which can be found in the Annex.
They say a picture is worth 1000 words.
The authors hope that this book not only remains an archival album, but becomes a historical memory and a lesson for more responsible policies that will ensure a better future for the generations to come - our children and our grandchildren.
