From Maria Simos-Levounes. My Story., in History, subsection, Oral History.
For a more detailed history of the Levounes family from Potamos, see this entry.

Peter and Matina are Maria's brother and sister.

Peter was a good student and became a tutor; here his is with his teacher, Mr. Triarchis, and the class at Astiko in 1945

"My brother was always studying in his office; from 1941 to 1943 he was a tutor at the mixed high school at Potamos. He went on the study medicine at Athens University, but my mother never saw him become a doctor because she passed away before he completed his degree.

Matina was an excellent student and even though she missed two years school because of the war, she was still accepted by Athens University to study dentistry".

Can you recognise and name the other students?

162:I can recognise some of them and I will name the ladies with the name I knew them at High school. Second from right standing,is Fotini Petroheilou, third from left next row is Anna Cassimatis, next Matina, next Yioula Cassimatis and last in same row is Lampis Mihalakakis. Behind Yioula Cassimatis and to the right, is Takis Kavieris. They still hold yearly re-unions in Kythera on the 18th of August. The only one I haven't seen for many,many years is Matina.
