Prosfygika, a live part of our recent history  are  our society’ s shame as well. They represent this uncomfortable part of our history that many want to forget – the hard welcoming of the refugees form Smyrne, the civil war, the nowadays storieσ of the refugees that find shelter there. They are left to dereliction as their privilieged location atrracts all possilble investors who would wish to demolish them.
Moreover their modern bare design cannot fit  in the mainstream taste.
