“Go because they are coming…” – A book about the burning of the villages of Domvraina, Thisvi and Hostia by the Germans

The burning of the villages of Domvraina, Thisvi and Hostia by the German invaders in August 1943, in which eleven patriots were executed, is one of the lesser-known Holocausts in occupied Greece.The book by Giorgos Mastrodimos “Go because they are coming…” (published by Bibliorama) is an anthology of 300 pages that collects rare historical material of this sacrifice and its assessment.

It is a book full of narrative narrative and coherent documentation that authentically shows younger people the dramatic events with the associated emotional burden.

The burning and destruction of Domvraina, Thisvi and Hostia by the Germans left, as University of Peloponnese history professor Thanasis Christou, a contributor to the volume, noted, “a page of tears, pain, blood and uprooting that remained indelible.” Traces in the consciousness of the people who experienced it. The multi-voiced narrative of the region’s multi-day drama is shocking. It illuminates the true parameters that shaped the conditions for the murderous invasion of the Germans in this area of ​​Helikon, inhabited by free people, which the conquerors could not subdue and resorted to deliberate criminality.

Their descendants relive it every anniversary and the testimonies collected by Giorgos Mastrodemos make the experience painful but at the same time liberating: after all, violence did not prevail. Freedom proved to be a higher ideal, even if it required pain, destruction and blood.

The presentation of the book will take place on Tuesday, October 24th (6:30 p.m.) in the Old Parliament.
