A daunting story of shipwreck, starvation, mutiny and cannibalism amongst a group left abandoned in the high Arctic.

Standing gracefully for the past 2,500 years, defying all the challenges imposed by the time, the Parthenon demonstrates the brilliance of the Greek architecture.
Today, this massive structure has become a one of the most celebrated surviving landmarks of the ‘Ancient Greece’. The current manifestation of the ‘Parthenon’ itself is a replacement of the older temple destroyed by the Persians. The year 447 BC saw the beginning of the ‘Parthenon’ & by 438 BC, substantial work was accomplished although, the interior ornamentation continued till 433 BC. The ‘Parthenon’ is an epitome of the ‘Doric Order Temple’ structure & its architecture was considered as the role model even during the period of antiquity. The ‘Parthenon’ was ornately decorated using the marble statues from both, outside & inside.


Friezes those surrounds all four sides of the temple, including the spaces above the colonnades, depict the scenes from the ancient Greek mythology & history. As far as the interior is concerned, the Cella, flanked on the three sides by a frieze illustrating the majestic procession of Athena’s annual festival called Panathenaia, is located. Today, this most important surviving structure of the ancient Greece magnetizes almost millions of the tourists every year. The ‘Parthenon’ now stands as the herald of the prowess & the glory possessed by the world’s first ever democracy that thrived in this part of the world, some 2500 years back & it is reckoned as one of the greatest cultural monuments in the world! In 1942, the young Jewish girl Misha, her Russian mother Gerusha and her German father Reuven hide from the Germans in a small house in Ardennes, Belgium. This imposing monument was dedicated to the goddess Athena, Athens’ patron deity & was standing atop the ‘Acropolis of Athens’. It is now reckoned as one of the most widely recognizable monuments & popular tourist destinations in the world!!! One of the prominent Athenian nobilities- Pericles, took initiative in the resurrection of the destroyed temple in the 5th century.
Soon after this, the ‘Parthenon’ was converted into a Catholic church dedicated to the ‘Theotokos’ (Virgin Mary). A minaret was the solitary addition by the ‘Ottomans’ in the ‘Parthenon’ complex, although, the rest of the structure remained undamaged until the 17th century.
The fourth side of the ‘Cella’ features a mural that depicts all the gods of the Greek pantheon.
The aesthetic wealth of ‘Parthenon’ is considered as the zenith of the Greek artistry & it is regarded as the lasting emblem of Athenian democracy & western civilization! For the next thousand years, the ‘Parthenon’ served as the great temple of the Greek reign. The conversion into the church was carried out by removing the internal pillars & some part of the walls in order to create an apse on the eastern flank.


The pieces of the statues were taken away as souvenirs & the structure was left deserted! The columns of the temple widen as they soar above the ground in order to balance the optical effect resulted from the slight upward curvature of the ‘Stylobate’. The depiction on the northern side is unknown, although it is widely believed to be the scenes from the Trojan War!
When her parents are captured by the Nazis, Misha is delivered to a German family and the abusive matriarch gives a bad treatment to the girl. It was built initially as a ‘Greek temple’ which, later on was converted into a treasury of the ‘Delian League’. The sculptures of pagan deities were also moved out to erase off any traces of the Greek reign. However, she finds support in the family of Ernest and his deranged wife Marthe that supplies groceries to foster family. Misha loves Ernest's dogs and the old man gives a compass to her and tells that her parents have been sent to East to forced labor.
Although, the Greek government has been campaigning since 1983 to regain the possession of the sculptures, their efforts hasn’t been fruitful so far!
When the old couple is denounced for sheltering the girl and arrested by the Germans, Misha flees through the woods heading east.
