Was at the time reading a book of what happened in this village during the 2nd world war and to visit the school now a museum was very moving.

The photograph is wrong. The museum is the rebuilt school where the Germans herded the women and children - and then set fire to the building and burnt it to the ground! As I understand it, someone opened the door and let the people out in time. Not so lucky the youths (some only 14) and men who were murdered by the Germans. Understandably Germans are not the most welcome visitors today. Take time to walk up to the memorial garden.

The moment my sisters and I entered the Museum, our heart were pricked to tears. The displays were very well done and showed the whole sad, touching historical event. Please go see this.

A small museum, but well laid out. Would advise people to view the video which gives accounts from living survivors in several languages.

A must when visiting this region. The museum takes you through the history of the most horrific time for the people of Kalavrita.
