Modern Painting "Captain Elias" 

Captain Elias was my father. In 1943, he was transporting approximately 400 British commandos from Egypt when his ship was attacked by Nazi planes and sunk just 2 miles offshore from his birthplace, Selinitsa. Sadly, half of the commandos, including his younger brother Petros, lost their lives in this tragic incident. They had to swim to shore in a sea stained red with blood.

To evade capture, they sought refuge at his cousin Eleni Saloufakos' olive groves. Every few days, Eleni bravely took six of them with her rowboat to rendezvous with a British submarine. In a remarkable display of courage and resourcefulness, she successfully helped all of them escape in a little over two months.
