Our project on Great Greek women will now focus on Katina Paxinou one of the most talented actresses in Greece whose great performing skills earned her an international fame and made her win an award.
We started looking into her life and work with great pleasure and interest as she came from the city of Piraeus and was raised in a neighbourhood close to our school.
We got to know her through several videos
We were really impressed by what we saw as we knew very little about her. We kept on working with great enthusiasm to discover more about her great personality.
At first, we collected information and photographs from various websites on the Internet, from old magazines, newspapers and relevant bibliography and created a small presentation of her life.

We are glad to present a drawing and an engraving depicting Katina Paxinou that we created using digital means (our computers).
Then you can go through a video featuring the main facts and most important moments of her life and her career. There is also a quiz at the end of the video based on the information presented . By doing it you can have an overall view of her life and work.
