“Most moving exhibition ever”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

Seeing the images of the villages of Crete with men facing execution made me see the war monuments in a new light.

“See what happened to Crete in WWII”
Reviewed November 15, 2010

Just around the corner from the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion this small Museum should be on your itinerary, just to learn a little of what happened to the Cretans who resisted the Germans when they occupied the island from 1941 to 1944. The Germans burnt villages and massacred civilians as punishment for their resistance. The Museum displays hundreds of photographs and huge amounts of text, mostly in Greek, with the odd document in English, including a declaration of surrender advising that the Germans had capitulated on 9th May 1945. There are also some artefacts from the war, including weapons used by all involved.
