    The scope of this photographic-historical album is to highlight the history of Kalamaria, not as part of the wider Thessaloniki region, but mainly as a region with its own identity.
The form and content seek to present the history of the city not so much from analytical texts, but from the combination of various historical sources. From documents, photographs and press reports of the time, as well as from oral testimonies. Thus, Kalamaria ‘speaks for itself’.
Through the oral testimonies and the personal language of the old residents of Kalamaria, the way the refugees saw the new place and how they lived their experiences becomes clearer. On the other hand, photographs give a picture of the place and the people, documents present the official side of events, while the press adds a ‘third eye’ to all this.

The publication concerns the history of Kalamaria in the period 1940 – 1967. During this period the new political identity of the residents of Kalamaria was formed and developed. A decisive event was the foundation of an independent municipality. The needs of survival did not prevent the residents of Kalamaria from being active in all areas of everyday life and from leaving their own mark in the fields 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 the basic infrastructure was being modernized. In the 1950s, the coastal zone was upgraded and from the 1960s the population composition of Kalamaria was enriched and new settlements were created.

   Thessaloniki in the 19th and early 20th century was the city of the Ottoman Empire, Selanik for the Gate, but also the “Jerusalem of the Balkans” for the Jews of Europe. At the same time, together with its Macedonian hinterland, it constituted the “apple of contention” of Balkan nationalisms, which with the Balkan Wars attempted to resolve the outstanding issues of the Aemos Peninsula. Since 1912 the population ratio tends to be reversed, as the former multinational city of a declining empire changes into an urban environment of a nation state. The fire of 1917 adds to the gradual population change, with the forced changes that occur in the architectural landscape, which is cut off from traditional icons and the past of the 19th century. However, the above changes, no matter how subversive they were in relation to the Ottoman past, would not be able to overturn the population map of the city in such a short time since its liberation.
