One hundred years ago, in autumn 1912, Thessaloniki turned yet another page in its long history: the Greek army entered the city triumphantly signalling the city’s incorporation, along with the rest of Macedonia, to the national core. The years that followed were not happy: wars, refugees, displacements, destructions, social and economic upheavals, political instability. The year 1922 found Thessaloniki embracing thousands of Greek refugees and moving with them towards the future.
This exhibition presents the first archaeological findings from excavations in the wider region of Thessaloniki, the work of the first Greek and foreign archaeologists as well as documents, paintings, postcards and personal mementos of the people who lived in the city as soldiers in the eastern front of World War I.
