A few words about the Digitization Project

The Digital Inventory of Municipal Museum of Kalavryta’s Holocaust was created with the valuable support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (www.snf.org), in order to fulfill the needs of internet users (Information – Knowledge- Research) on subjects which are related to the Holocaust of Kalavryta, which occurred during the Second World War.
