We are proud to announce the launching of the "Makronissos Digital Museum" [English Version]!

From 1947 until 1961 the island of Makronissos was used as a space of confinement and exile for over 40.000 Greek citizens who were discriminated by the anti-communist State for their political beliefs.

The ASKI Digital Museum offers a unique insight in the exile experience illustrating the everyday conditions, the politics of repression, and the traumatic legacies of this important chapter in the lenghty history of state-organized persecution.

The completion of the "Makronissos Digital Museum" [English Version]" was made possible by the generous support of the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung-Office in Athens.
