Thanasis Fotiou is a native son of Marathousa Greece one of the villages in Northern Greece targeted by the Nazi War criminal Fritz Schubert in 1944. A graduate of Aristotle University of Salonica followed by a PhD in Classics from the University of Cincinnati, he became an associate professor of classics at Carleton University in Ottawa Canada, spending his life teaching undergraduate and graduate students in his adopted country. His memories of near death at the hands of the Nazi occupiers at age ten continued to haunt him into his retirement years and led him to piece together the real events of this period from extensive hours of survivor testimonies and long forgotten government documents. The last voices of a brutal period in Greek history cannot be forgotten.
