Portolago – Ghosts in the Aegean

by Ioanna Asmeniadou-Phocas , Greece

An aeronautical base, defensive structures, batteries and a whole new town are some of the constructions made by the Italians in Leros in the 1930s. A little island with 7.500 Greek inhabitants has since housed more than 100.000 people in these structures. Military personnel, teenagers, mental patients, political prisoners, refugees, all of them leaving their mark on the island.
