Roza Benveniste with classmates on an excursion in Athens

This photograph was taken in 1939. On this day we had gone on an excursion to Athens from Thessaloniki with my school, the American, or Anatolia College. Every year the graduating students of Anatolia went on this excursion for an entire week in order to visit the capital of Greece. As you can see we have formed the letter M with our positions because we were at the dam of Lake Marathon. It is an artificial lake that was created in order to supply Athens with water.
