Tassos Antonopoulos was born in Greece--Meligalas, Messinia in 1926. His childhood and teenage years coincided with a difficult period for the country. He lived in the difficult years of the Italian and German occupation of Greece, and at the age of 16 he was inducted for service in the struggle for the freedom of his country. In 1955, he, along with so many, many others, took the path of emigration. Today, he lives permanently in the city of Chicago, United States of America.
Tassos Antonopoulos is not a writer and never tried to be crowned with the title of author. He never even sat on a desk of any universities. He finished high school at a time when schools were operating under adverse conditions, at a time when the teachers were unable, due to hunger and other deprivations, to provide students with the proper knowledge, and at a time when schools gave two Finishing Certificates a year. Tassos Antonopoulos, however, has experienced the great university of life, and received society’s diploma, which he uses for his supplies to knowledge and as a unique weapon of truth, in order to write his first book, “The Calvary of Meligalas,” (2006), which was revised and reissued in 2008.
