A heartfelt “Efcharisto” to all of those individuals who have supported my work. I created The Pappas Post to share stories and information about “all things Greek.”
Like you, I am fascinated with the rich and diverse history, heritage and culture of Greece and I wanted to create a portal through which I could share this content and these stories.
As you may know, I am also involved in several film projects and have recently completed a short film called “Eleftheromania” that has traveled the world at film festivals from London to Toronto— and has won several awards.
The film tells the story of a group of courageous Greeks, who were given impossible orders by their Nazi captors inside Auschwitz.
It was a personal journey for me that took me to Berlin, where I interviewed former SS officers, as well as almost a week inside the camps at Auschwitz where I tracked down the details about these courageous Greeks, including a register with their tattoo numbers and where they came from.
You may recall my regular blog about my Auschwitz visit:
The film stars Academy Award-winning actor Olympia Dukakis, Anthoula Katsimatides and the closing credits feature a version of the song “Minore Tis Avgis” that was recorded by Glykeria specifically for this film.
The twenty-minute long film is about to be added to Amazon Video for purchase/rental streaming and before it’s made available, I wanted to say THANK YOU to those individuals who chose to pitch in $5, $10 (and more!) a month to help me cover the expenses to run The Pappas Post via our Patreon Page.
It isn’t a lot of people right now— just under 100 readers, out of the tens of thousands of readers who read The Pappas Post every month.
But those readers are special because they understand that even “free” content that we provide is costing someone time and money.
I’m grateful for the support and I’m proud to share my short film with those individuals who support The Pappas Post via Patreon.
The password-protected link will stay live for ONE WEEK ONLY— UNTIL SATURDAY, JUNE 15, 2019 at Midnight EST.
From the bottom of my heart— THANK YOU! And enjoy the film.
