KALAMARIA WRITES HISTORY 1940 – 1967. FROM SURVIVAL TO CREATION
The publication concerns the history of Kalamaria from 1940 to 1967. During this period, the new political identity of the Squids was formed and developed. The establishment of an independent Municipality was a decisive event. Survival needs did not stop the residents of Kalamaria from actively active in all areas of everyday life and from giving their own stigma in the field of work, education, collective organization, entertainment, culture and religious life. Kalamaria gradually ceased to be an isolated settlement of pre-war Thessaloniki and developed into an area where basic infrastructure was being modernized. In the 1950s, the coastal zone was upgraded and since 1960 the population composition of Kalamaria was enriched and new settlements were created.
