Greek Folk Dancing has been a part of my life for nearly 40 years. Through dancing, you learn culture, language, religion, AND history. Many of these beautiful dances come from Asia Minor with some representing the plight of the Greek experiences at the hands of the Ottoman Turks, and the destruction of Smyrna by Kemal Ataturk’s forces.
Platanides Through the Eye of the Storm, gives the reader insight into the plight of a family that lived there during these tragic times in history. Mr. Planes’ book allows you to empathize with the Platanides’ family struggles and at the same time celebrate a strong commitment to survival and family achievements.
The next time I hear a “Rembetiko”, this book will enhance my thoughts as I will hear it in the contexts of the story of the Platanides Family. For those that love and celebrate our Greek heritage and our Orthodox Christian Faith, I recommend that they read this book. It is totally enjoyable.
