Three Candles: Stories of Women in Exile




Three Candles:  Stories of Women in Exile


As reported by the Greek News Agenda - "A documentary film is to shed light on one of the darkest pages in Modern Greek history:  Three Candles tells the story of thousands of women exiled to the small island of Trikeri, at Pagastikos Gulf.


During the 1946-1949 Greek Civil War, thousands of citizens involved with the left-wing Democratic Army, even by mere association, were sent to concentration camps on isolated islands.


Trikeri received thousands of exiled women, many of whom were with their children.  The documentary is an account of their struggle to survive, and their desperate efforts to turn an almost deserted island into a place of life and culture."
