This is the website of Victor Zorbas, author of the book Spinalonga, the isle of the damned. On this website you will find information on Spinalonga island, located at the north eastern side off the island of Crete in Greece. Victor has devoted a large part of his life studying the history of this island. His research uncovered a story within a story that occurred many years ago. The inhabitants of Spinalonga paid a heavy price medically, emotionally and financially. During his work as a tour leader at this island, Victor faced passive and active resistance of people who were less than truthful when asked about Spinalonga, its history and the reason for its existence.
He personally escorted over one million visitors over 25 years to Spinalonga, telling the story that needed to be told. This story can only be told by the man who lived it through interviews, personal anecdotes and historical photos of people who lived on Spinalonga until the end.
