3 temporary exhibitions for the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Crete
On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Crete (May 20 - June 1, 1941), three temporary exhibitions are taking place in the island, accompanied by other photo exhibitions, film projections, projection mapping on historic buildings, etc. Most of those temporary events have a short term nature (just for a couple of weeks). We wish they could last for a longer period!
