This is my student ID from the Polytechnic University of Athens, issued in 1947.
After the war we stayed in a house on Solonos Street for a few years.
We didn't have any money left, I got admitted to university and had to study at that same kitchen table after dinner; imagine that.
But it was alright, as I had to go to the army after two years as a student, everyone had to go for three years.
My mother preserved this student ID, otherwise I would have thrown it away, I guess.
