Holding hands

This is the statue of National Reconciliation, a monument erected in 1989 to celebrate the 40 years from the end of the 1945-49 civil war.

The statue stands in Klafthmonos Square (means: square of grief), the square took its name from the civil servants of 19th century who were fired from their state jobs every time the government was changing and were gathering there to cry for their fate.
