P16.1. C3 mobility “Local cultural heritage in a European perspective and the Romanian National Day”

From 28th November to 4th December twelve (12) pupils of the B and C Class and three (3) accompanying teachers, Mrs.Maria Mangana, Mrs.Dimitra Ntomprou and Mr.Evangelos Tzanidis, of our school participated in the C3 mobility “Local cultural heritage in a European perspective and the Romanian National Day” in Petrosani Romania.

The travelling pupils were twelve (12) instead of thirteen (13) that was initially planned, because one pupil denied to participate to the mobility due to personal reasons. Also the accompanying teachers were three (3) instead of two (2) that was initially planned.

All the activities of the C3 mobility are detailed described at the C3 mobility report of the Romanian school at menu “MOBILITIES” and also at twinspace:

P16.4. Watching the documentary “The Great Fire of Salonica in 1917: Birth of a City”

On 23rd December 2019, the pupils and teachers of our school watched at Olympion Cinema Thessaloniki the documentary “The Great Fire of Salonica in 1917: Birth of a City”, an archives-based documentary narrating the experiences of Thessaloniki’s residents during the biggest and most destructive fire in the history of the city. It reveals the philosophy and the backdrop of the unprecedented urban change that followed, changing forever the city.

This documentary was suggested by a group of students of the Erasmus project who have already watched it on 11 November 2018 at the Town Hall of Pilea-Hortiatis during the first presentation of the film in our municipality.

Ioannis Katsenis, pupil of B Class, wrote about the documentary: “On 23rd December 2019 we watched the documentary “The Great Fire of Salonica in 1917: Birth of a City” at Olympion Cinema Thessaloniki. The documentary is a co-production of the Greek National TV and CosmoteTV, directed by Grigoris Vardarinos. The sixty-minute documentary chronicles the tragic events of August 1917 in Thessaloniki. The documentary describes the events with absolute accuracy and has very good music.

The fire, which left more than 75.000 homeless and engulfed almost the entire historic center of Thessaloniki in 32 hours, began on the afternoon of August 18, 1917, from a refugee camp near the city’s northwest wall. More than 9.500 buildings, houses, shops, offices were burned. The multiracial and multilingual Balkan metropolis is finally being redesigned, with the decision of the government of Eleftherios Venizelos. Based on the plan of Ernest Hébrard, it is formed from scratch, in order to take the urban form it has today. The social, political and economic impact of the fire is a turning point in the city’s history.

The director of the film, Mr.Vardarinos, used many historical sources and worked some years on them. The documentary is of exceptional quality, it is a successful production that was carried out with hard work and effort and we all watched it with great interest and admiration.”
