WOMENS MEMORIALS

In Zalongo, in the northwestern part of Greece, lies a grandiose monument dedicated to the Women of Kassope. Representing the 'dance of Zalogos' it was created by sculptor Zogolopoulos right above the hill, on the rocks where the Souliot women and their children committed suicide, not letting the men of the Turk Ali Pasha catch them. Souli was one of the four small villages in Thesprotia, a prefecture of Greece, who decided to live in the mountains and free from the Ottoman Yoke.
