Lost Professions Museum in Athens, Greece

A special and innovative museum already in the first year of operation in the heart of Athens, with waxwork exhibits representing professions of old age that today are lost. It attracts visitors of all ages, both foreign and Greeks in order to learn the younger and remember the elder.

Another "Lost Profession": translators who can actually translate without silly mistakes.  Incredible.

Confessions of the last zournas-player in northern Greece

During the field-research carried out in the prefecture of Evros in 1996 for the “Thrace” programme of the Music Library of Greece, only one zournas-player was located and recorded. His name was Arif Karatza, a Muslim Gypsy who was born in Kyani in 1923 and lives in Didymoteichon.
