    Oral history interview with Evangelos Stathis


    Interview Summary
    Evangelos Stathis, born in 1926 in the village of Perama outside Ioannina, in Central/Western Greece, describes his experience as a Greek Christian around the German occupation (1941 – 1943); his father, Elias, who was a nurse and farmer, and did other odd jobs; his younger brother Demetrios; working as a shepherd in his young years, taking cows out to pasture; not knowing any Jews personally, but knowing who they were; the Jews living among Christians in a neighborhood in Iaonnina, where they were generally merchants and had a lot of stores; hearing old Christian women cautioning kids to behave because otherwise they would give them to the Jews to put them in barrels with nails; being in the area of Kormanio (a public square in Ioannina, Greece) when he saw the Germans arresting all the Jews and how he and others did not stay around long because they were afraid they may be mistaken for Jews and get arrested; seeing later a convoy of trucks, full of Jews, drive away; and hearing (but not witnessing) that after the Jews left, people took their houses and stores.
