Film Showing: The Politics of Famine in the Greek 1940s.

FOOD 2 JPEG

The Birmingham Centre for Modern & Contemporary History, in association with BOMGS, is pleased to present

A Basket of Food: Greece in the 1940’s

Directed by Dr. Sheila Lecoeur (Imperial College)

Muirhead Tower Room 118, Wednesday 26th November, 2 pm.

All welcome. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.

This dramatic and moving film tells the story of Greece in World War II. The frightening prospect of running out of food leading to a critical famine is remembered by survivors. Their human stories show that society began to fall apart when people could no longer help each other. The film uses rare historic footage and links past and present to show that shadows of the past still haunt Greece today.

Dr Sheila Lecoeur is a lecturer at Imperial College, London and author of Mussolini’s Greek Island: Fascism and the Italian Occupation of Syros in World War II, London: I.B. Tauris 2009.
