The Dance of Zalongo


Book Description
The author's latest publication returns to the area of history, with an in-depth account of the heroic deaths of the women of Zalongo. Encircled by the Muslim enemy, they chose to dance off the cliffs. “The women, entrapped, turned towards the steep cliff. It was December 16, 1803 when the dance began. As the enemy charged against them, the women – one by one – threw their children from the cliff before jumping after them themselves... The decision: to choose death over enslavement.” This pivotal moment in European history became a rallying cry for independence and the often-repeated slogan "Freedom or Death!" Papoutsy has delved energetically into this critical time of Greek history which has been memorialized by some of Europe's greatest artists.

Τα πλοία της συμπόνιας [Ships of Mercy: The True Story of the Rescue of the Greeks, Smyrna, September 1922]
Greek-language edition by Kastaniotis Publishers

Book Description [Περίληψη]
Τα πλοία της συμπόνιας μας μεταφέρουν ση Σμύρνη του 1922 και μας αποκαλύπτουν όλα όσα συνέβησαν στους ‘Έλληνες της Μικράς Ασίας το Σεπτέμβριο της χρονιάς αυτής. Ήταν μια περίοδος τραγική και συνάμα ηρωική, ωστόσο, με το πέρασμα του χρόνου, τα γεγονότα λησμονήθηκαν, αν και οι συνέπειές τους έχουν αφήσει το σημάδι τους σε εκαντάδες χιλιάδες οικογένειες. Το βιβλίο βασίζεται στη δεκαετή έρευνα του Χρήστου και της Μαίρης Παπουτσή, που ταξίδεψαν σε ολόκληρο τον κόσμο προκειμένου να τεκμηριώσουν, με βάση τις ιστορικές πηγές, την αλήθεια γύρω από τη διάσωση των προσφύγων. Μέσα από ένα πλούσιο υλικό (δημοσιεύματα στον Τύπο, ωαυτικά ημερολόγια, επιστολές και τηλεγραφήματα, αφηγήσεις από επιζήσαντες, φωτογραφίες) το οποίο δημοσιεύεται για πρώτη φορά, τα Πλοία της συμπόνιας δίνουν απαντήσεις-απαντήσεις ανατάντεχες-στα ερωτήματα που μας απασχολούν σχετικά με την καταστροφή της Σμύρνης. Πρόκειται για ένα βιβλίο που διαλύει τους κοινους μύθους και αποκαλύπτει τους πραγματικούς σωτήρες αυτής της τραγωδίας, αναδεικνύοντας μία από τις πιο οδυνηρές εξόδους στην ιστορία-των Ελλήνων ικρασιατών από τη γη των προγόνων τους.
