DW's international choir has started its seven-day tour of Greece in the town of Kalavryta, the site of a massacre by German soldiers during World War II. The theme of the visit is reconciliation.
In September 1943, German Wehrmacht troops slaughtered some 5,200 Italian soldiers on the Greek isle. The massacre was a turning point in Greece and Italy's relationship, but the bloody event was downplayed for years.
