In his post, local reporter Nektarios Pokkias had a short interview with Hans and Maria in Greek and wrote:

“A touching and beautiful initiative by two wonderful people from Germany, Hans and Maria, who have been living in Laerma permanently for the last 14 years. They invited all the people of Laerma at their own expense to have fun thanking them for helping to put out the fire last July around from their home. Good for them. There is still honor and humanity!”
