    Right guys thats the last of the Askifou museum pics. Next is Kondomari, most guys will know of this where the massacre of village people was captured by Franz-Peter Weixler, then serving as a war propaganda correspondent. The village is the next one from where I was staying about 1 km away. These are the pics of the memorial in the village where the massacre took place. The olive tree stumps are where the locals chopped down the trees where the men where stood when the Germans opened fire. Maybe a Greek member could save the pics with writing on and re post it with a translation of what it says

    Sorry guys forgot to add this:

    "Following Student's order, the occupants of Kondomari were blamed for the death of a few German soldiers whose bodies had been found near the village. On 2 June 1941, four lorries full of German paratroopers from the III Battalion of Luftlande-Sturm-Regiment 1 under the command of Oberleutnant Horst Trebes surrounded Kondomari. Trebes, a former member of the Hitler Youth, was the highest ranking officer of the Battalion to have survived the Battle unwounded. Men, women and children were forced to gather in the village square. Then, a number of hostages was selected among the men while women and children were released. The hostages were led to the surrounding olive groves and later fired upon. The exact number of the victims is unclear. According to German records, a total of 23 men were killed but other sources raise the toll to about 60. The whole operation was captured on film by Franz-Peter Weixler, then serving as a war propaganda correspondent (kriegsberichter) for the Wehrmacht." Taken from Wikipedia

    This is the Fallschirmjäger memorial just outside Chania. The local house has a pit bull terrier that is on a chain which comes halfway out onto the path. It puts people walking up to the memorial, there is no love here for this memorial to be honest
