PHOTOS: Help… Do you know these people from Crete?
Irene, Tasos and Nicolas. My grandfather Arthur Ernest Wright was captured on Crete in 1941 shortly after the New Zealand troops landed, he then spent time in prison camp, he escaped 2 times looking for food and spent weeks hiding in the forest/hills eating grass and worms before this family found him and hid him for months before he was taken back to the camp.
One picture is a copy of the papers that were dropped all over the island requesting soldiers to surrender or be treated as spy, he did not want his new friends to get in trouble so he gave himself over to Germans.
This year my husband and I are taking my dad to visit Crete/Greece and visit historical sites.
We hope that someone may know this family so we can learn more about them…and meet their descendants.
Without their help the next 3 generations would not be here.
My grandad died 2yrs ago 3 weeks before he turned 100…he had this photo on his wall in a special frame.
Please share this so that we can find them.
Thanks… That’s Arthur at the front of the 4 th picture at the 20yr reunion march in New Zealand.
