The Parliament of Bodies: Working Group Distomo
with Argyris N. Sfountouris and Margarita Tsomou

6:30–7:30 pm
Fridericianum, Friedrichsplatz 18, Kassel
Live stream available

In Greece, June 10 is the most significant day of remembrance for victims of the Nazi regime. On this day in 1944, an SS massacre took place in the village of Distomo: The entire village was burned to the ground and the inhabitants were brutally murdered. The same happened in countless places across Greece. For decades, alongside the Working Group Distomo, Argyris Sfountouris, a physicist, poet, translator, and well-known survivor of the massacre, has been fighting for legal recognition and reparations for the victims of these war crimes. As a practical exercise in the politics of remembrance, he will speak at the “Parliament of Bodies” and, together with Margarita Tsomou, campaign for a reappraisal of the atrocities of fascism—which is all the more urgent in light of political developments in Europe and worldwide.
