About Victoria Theodorou:

Victoria Theodorou was a monumental Modern Greek poet. In her poetry personal experience merges with historical events, those of recent Greek history, as well as those of past eras. She wrote passionately, using symbols which unite Modern Greece with Ancient and Mediaeval Greece.
Victoria Theodorou was born near Chania, near the river Kedrissós. During World War II, before she had even finished high-school, she became a member of the Young Peoples Resistance Movement (E.P.O.N.) against the German occupation, carrying food and clothing to the resistance fighters and those in hiding. She was arrested and taken to the concentration camps for women political prisoners of Chios, Trikkeri, Makronissos, and once more Trikkeri, for a period of nearly four years in total.(Poeticanet)

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
