«Being a part of this journey with oral history was exciting. The narrators through their stories awoke our five senses. The vividly described their experiences and memories in a way that also the researcher became part of it. Allesandro Portelli very aptly states that oral history is an art based on a relationship between the narrator and the researcher and between the past and the present. I would like to warmly thank Primarolia organisation, the postgraduate program “Oral History” of the Hellenic Open University and the Oral History Association for this unique opportunity.»
