20 November 2013 / 16:11:33  

The documentary "Political Emigrants" gathered on 18 November its first Athenian audience at Free Thinking Zone bookshop.

During the Civil War in 1946-1949, about 200 thousand Greeks left the country and settled in the former Soviet bloc and about 20-25 thousand went to Bulgaria. The film follows the fortunes of four first-generation political emigrants and of three second-generation, what happened to them when they arrived in Bulgaria, how they managed to arrange their lives there and how Greece met them 30 years later. It also shows how they have retained their devotion to their second country.

The topic of emigrants and their fate today is again on the agenda in the two Balkan countries. The event ended with a discussion during which everyone had the opportunity to ask questions and share their views on the topic.
