“The Voice of our Village” and the “Vlahokerasiotika Chronicles”
The “Vlahokerasiotes Association of Attica –Prophet Elias” published for a number of years the newspapers, “Vlahokerasiotika Chronicles” (―) and the “Voice of our Village” (1984-2008) which constituted a significant link among Vlahokerasiotes living in the village, in Greece and abroad. The total number of issues of the “Voice of the Village” and a small number of issues of the “Vlahokerasiotika Chronicles” constitute a part of the personal archives of Angelos Bistolas, who, for the needs of the Vlahokerasia Digital Museum and at his own expense, converted the above archives to digital form so that they can be accessible to all Vlahokerasiotes who would like to view them. The multiplying results of internet visits to the archives will be significant to the degree that they inform the younger generation and help the older generation recollect loved ones, past feelings and places.
More specifically, the electronic press archives of Angelos Bistolas include:
